About the Image(s)

Happy New Year to you and all the members of the group!!

To create the image this month I have used five of my images. For the base layer I have used two photos a forest that I have combined together.
I have applied a motion filter to the trees to soften the trunks, then I have blended another image of seawater to give the lighting effect and some texture.
For the colour I have used another image of a tree in red bloom. Finally I extracted the girl with a simple photoshop selection and placed in the forest path. Some contrast and vignette has been applied too.

Yes! I love this image Maria. You've worked some real magic here. I am always drawn to taking images of the forrest with a trail leading off into the distance. This image is haunting, beautiful and compelling. This one should be submitted to a contast as it is asking for a first place prize.   Posted: 01/09/2022 12:02:37

A well done mysterious forest image. I think the light rays
give it the wow factor. How did you make the rays?   Posted: 01/14/2022 18:28:21
