Photoshop Week Part 2: Altered Reality
First up we have digital sandwiches. These images have been melded with a blurred version of themselves to produce an interesting dreamy effect. It doesnt work with every image, but I kinda like these three.
A statue in Takayama.
Heian Shrine in Kyoto. (Look for another version of this picture on Friday!)
This was a fun one. It was late afternoon in Shirakawago, and the sun was no longer shining into the valley so the town was getting darker quickly. However the sky was still very bright, so any picture of the houses featured a blown out sky. Which was too bad as the clouds looked great. So I just took on picture of the beautiful sky, and one picture of the beautiful houses, and combined them. I think it looks pretty cool, even if, to my eye, the lighting and such in the scene isn't quite right. It doesn't really look real.
A nice artsy filter effect for the fish.
