Double Exposure Acer

By csurry  
Double exposure of tree - since D100 does not allow this fully in camera, two exposures were taken once sharply focused and on de-focused with exposure compensation. The two images were then merged in PS using multiply.

You probably need to be quick Michelle the lack of rain is causing a lot of leaves to wither on the branch, particularly with the acers. Good luck finding a suitable tree.

very good. for true "double exposure", if you have two shots underexposed by a stop, you should merge with "screen".

But I do like this effect.

Your right Bri - I did shoot at -1 EV but when I tried blending I could not get the right effect (must have missed screen mode). So I adjusted exposure in RAW mode and combined using multiply. Thanks for the tip - the screen mode shows more depth to the colour and I shall use for the other images I shot the same way

Beautiful picture, lovely, lively colours. I have a question. How is this done and then combined in PS? Any help?

Lovely effect- it has a real dreamlike quality.

is that means one with 0 EV, one with -1 EV and defocus, and blend with screen mode?

Ooops sorry Cole and previous posters, didn't have a flag on this to tell me when people had commented.

Both should be shot at -1 EV. One in focus and one defocused, then combined in PS. If you have a D200 or D2X then this can now be done in camera.

The tree is an acer, not sure if it is a acer japonica or acer palmatum. Would guess by the leaf shape a japonica.

Apologies again.
