In My Sights

here is a practice digital image piece..i com posited 2 of my photos....which met with many unsuccessful efforts...i was going to give up for another day when during chores as i was thinking through my steps
i thought i had an aha moment...

so i came back in to give it another try

i began working in camera raw to perk up the foggy image

i did add a texture and i forget with mode i ended up using but i like the old photo look about it

then i extracted the spider from this photo and added it to the cow photo
where i liked the push pull effect giving the effect i am shooting the camera through the web

there you have it...a successful merging of layers..
it took all day off and on...but i practiced through it...
thanks for coming by

Well, Mary, this is really good. How in the world did you ever get that web extracted? Whew! Yes, it does take all day to get what you want -- or something close to it. Nice work. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment.

I'm so proud of you. You did an excellent job. And sticking to it is the whole battle, sometimes.

I have some freeware called GIMP. I don't use it often enough to be able to use it as quickly nor as cleanly as I'd like to. I don't want to enhance or improve photographs (which I see you can successfully do NOW), but rather take pieces out of images as LAYERS, which is what you've done here. Great work!

I know how hard it was to do that. I'm impressed. AND, it turned out great. Well done. :)Bea
