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.
