My first attempt at a version gallery. Hope it works. Roll over the versions to see individual comments
This one took a few hours to create.
The initial shot was taken in my studio with the shot in mind.
I removed the background, and added a Church and something for the angel to 'stand' on. I colour corrected, and altered the exposure on the Church, until it looked dark.
I then added a suitable background. I got this one from fotolia.
Again, I adjusted the exposure of the background to get close to what I wanted.
I added a moon, stars and wings to the angel, again to get the mood for the final piece.
I tweaked the exposure even more, and added a blue wash to everything to make it look like the moon was lighting the church and angel.
I added shadows to the angel and wings to make them drop away and make the front lighting even stronger.
Finally, I added highlights to the front of the angel to make the front lighting even more pronounced.
Hope you like it.
