Turning My World ...

By Dee_licious1
Upside Down.

This was one idea that came to me after my last upload. I had to hold the feather with water drop in my left hand while I had the camera in my right (a lot of swear words left my mouth during the shoot!)

Took out the sky and replaced it with a graduation of the darkest blue and the white of the reflected cloud (all it had was a white/grey). Adjusted brightness, contrast and added +4 saturation in the bubble.

Created a graduated background layer, moved main pic into place, added a drop shadow (layer style), added my name, flattened image then resized.

Big is much better.

Thank you for looking.

Dee

What can I say? A stunning shot, love everything....the sunlight, the angle, the blues in the sky but most of all, yes most of all.....I love the reflection and hence the very appropriate title.

A lovely construction and careful use of sympathetic colour. Nicely worked.

Clever shot, I imagine a lot of patience was needed! It was worth it though, well done Smile

A fascinating picture, and being new to this I appreciate it when people describe how they have achieved the picture I am viewing, as you have.
