About the Image(s)

The original was an image from a PSA Conference Tour in Tucson, AZ 12 years ago. I'm sorry, I can't remember exactly what I did but I know I played around with Levels and Hue and Saturation to get Original 2.

Then, on Original 2 in Images>Adjustments>Canvas Size I added blank space at the bottom of the image.

Next, with Flaming Pear software I added Flood in the blank area at the bottom to give the impression of a flood in the desert!

Your low perspective made the addition of the water work very well. Excellent creative idea!

My suggestion is to add the flood as a layer and slightly overlap the shore line. Then, erase small bits of the water to reveal the uneven natural landscape. The straight water line doesn't work for me.

Tucson is just 2 1/2 hours south from my home, I must go exploring there again sometime soon. The desert SW has many varied photographic opportunities. You found a good one.   Posted: 11/02/2019 23:30:08

Delightful transformation adding so much to an already interesting original.   Posted: 11/14/2019 02:47:47

Well done...I agree with Jerry that the water line is a bit too straight, and unnatural...Try cloning a few of the weeds or plants down into the water just a tad...   Posted: 11/17/2019 14:54:01

Good idea to add the flood although in agreement with Jerry and Shirley that the water line is too perfect and could do with some foliage making it look more natural.   Posted: 11/20/2019 10:44:31
