Linked Arches.

Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)


Since this is not strictly speaking a landscape photograph, but a composite of two photographs (background and arch), and since there is no "Miscellaneous" category, I have placed it here.

If members feel that this is not an appropriate picture for the Cafe, please feel free to say so and I will make sure not to post anything like it again. Positively no feelings will be hurt. It may be more appropriate in a PhotoShop forum.

I think it is a wonderful image.

Your details of how to do would be great also. So we can learn.

We need a forum that addressed out creative talents.

Like RETOUCHING..

Or the artsy Phartsy Phorum.

It is time......

Thank you Gordon.

For more Utah Photos check out

http://sfox.smugmug.com/keyword/utah

and for more of these "creations" check out

http://sfox.smugmug.com/gallery/275475

All but one are from Utah pictures.


Thank you Gale. For probably the best book out there on retouching check out PhotoShop Restoration & Retouching by Katrin Eismann. She is excellent. All the internet bookstores carry it.

The second link above contains other examples which were much easier than the arches. Only cutting, rotating and pasting. If you try it, good luck.

I like it - it reminds me of the artwork I see whilst trying to play a computer game called Myst.

A bit gothic but not quite earthly. Like, it's an emblem from some other place.

Thanks to Gordon, Simon and David.

Simon and David here is the principal source.

The background is from Everglades mud. Took a picture of a flower and the underwater mud behind it is what is here. I use it for portraits sometimes because it looks like one of those backdrops they sell. In PS it is easy to change the color etc.

Gale,

I misread your post. You were suggesting a forum for such things and when I saw the retouching part I thought you were asking for info on that.
The older I get, the more I see things that aren't there!

Sorry,

John

Hi Gordon -

I like your image and I think that you did an excellent job - much better than I could - in doing the "over and under" combination of these.

Now, I hope that you don't take offense with this, but . . .

the arches' color, shape, and texture reminds me of what I saw underneath the top English muffin of the Egg McMuffin I had this morning! LOL.

Thanks Eric. But if I were you I'd find another place for breakfast.
