A way to go

Had a quick go at trying to blend things with the sea but am way off course.

.... A long way to go yet trying to get things realistic. I'll get there.

Awake early……

……. this morning. Sitting having a coffee and staring at the teaspoon I’d used an idea sprang to mind, why not try a bit of low key work thought I. Out came the gear, Olympus OMD 10 Mk 2 with an Olympus 60mm macro lens attached. Hat a few tries using...

Omega 3 fish oil capsules....

Good for the heart, also good to use as a subject through a macro lens. I liked the light and colour.

I'm no expert on blending too images, but in the little bit i have done I've often duplicated the background (the sea?) then placed the item layer (raft?) in between them. then hard delete some of background over the item, then towards the edges use a softer and softer delete. to blend it into the waves.
Also I'd look at using a mask on a brightness later to slightly darken the front of the raft as the light looks to be coming from the right.

Size is another thing, are the seagulls too large here? when you add something it becomes important to you so you give it more prominence than it might otherwise have.

But looking at your other work, you probably already know this.

Thanks Stuart, the problem I'm having is blending the water splashes on top of the raft. Since posting this blog I've been experimenting with different blend modes and have had some limited success. Sometimes it works. I'm sure I'll get there.v
