About the Image(s)

We visited the National Arboretum today. I decided to try a few of the double exposure apps on my camera. First I took a picture of a tree bark which gave me texture. Then I took a picture of the columns at the Arboretum. The camera merges the two images together. I like the effect that it gave me. Nothing serious, just a fun thing to try. The app has a lot of fun uses. You can double expose flower, put images into a portrait of profile and many more things.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

In camera photo merges are always going to be a bit of a surprise, as you can plan an idea to try but you have very little control of the final output except for the overall positioning of the elements.
You made a good choice of the tree bark as a texture as it was not too heavy and over strongly textured or coloured , and has its 'grain' running in the right direction for your following image. The use of the light coloured columns has given a good base for the texture. I feel that the inclusion of the figure was important as that little bit of human interest creates a strong centre of interest.   Posted: 11/11/2020 08:23:55

Love the double exposure feature in the camera. Just this summer I discovered it. However, you have surpassed anything I did. I love this result. Very nice.   Posted: 11/11/2020 09:14:12

This worked out very nice! I have never tried texture merging, looks like fun.   Posted: 11/23/2020 14:28:10

The image is quite interesting even without the texture overlay. There is a story of the person looking up at the pillars and wondering.
perhaps you could have straightened the right hand edge.

The texture overlay gives this image a unique feel and look. The figure in the foreground forms a good contract with the massive columns. A real good combination.   Posted: 11/26/2020 14:49:31
