Cheers Darren ... I quite like the control the technique gives you, but I'm not 100% that I've done it justice here.

LOL ... message received and understood Lillian Wink

The stamp ... well, if you have a 'smart phone' you could download an app to read QR codes and you would find out ... just a different [and smarter?] way for people to link to my website using mobile technology.

Single shot this one, just a 617 crop across the middle of the frame.

Have a superb weekend yourself m'dear Smile

Terrific image Paul, the luminosity masking seems to have worked very well... Must take a lot of time, but worth the effort!

Simply put I have the three exposures as layers in PS and by using channels I can make masks of the areas I want from each layer. Google it, there's loads of tutorials on it - some good, some not so. It takes a little getting used to, but I'm quite impressed with the results this far Lesley!!! Smile

Cheers all,
Paul

Beautiful image Paul. I saw a tutorial on Luminosity Masking a little while ago but never tried it out. This has inspired me to have think again.

Cheers guys ... can highly recommend it Derek, not that difficult to do, but I suppose doing it well takes a little effort/practice!!!
