About the Image(s)

I am starting to learn Photoshop! I'm taking an on line class through PSA and decided to do a composite of two photos I took recently at a local botanical garden. It's a mish-mash from a B&W and color photograph. I used a filter called "oil paint" on one of the layers. I messed with the opacity and the order of the layers.

It was a good learning experiment for m.Jennifer

Well done . . . if you hadn't told me it was two images . . . I would have thought you were viewing an interesting plant through barren tree branches. The size/scale would have puzzled me - and why was the flower in bloom and the branches barren (except for the small white flowers - adding confusion/interest to the scene!). The texture (perhaps the oil paint filter) - would have made me realize something was manipulated. I wonder if the image would be more powerful with or without the oil paint texture?

Keep playing with Photoshop!   Posted: 04/03/2021 09:45:31

Thanks, Steven! This is still a work in progress and I now have a version with the oil paint just on the flower and not the background. I'll try a version without any filter and see what that looks like. It was a fun way to practice some Photoshop techniques.   Posted: 04/03/2021 17:29:46

Lovely composite. There are lots of variations you can try with the oil paint filter to make it look more surreal. I have gotten some to look very Van-Goh-ish. Hope you saved all the layers!   Posted: 04/03/2021 14:19:31

Thank you! Yes, I've saved the layers and will play with them more as I learn more Photoshop.   Posted: 04/03/2021 17:31:21
