Today I tried something new. I let myself be inspired by a blog post how to make HDR images. No, I did not a HDR image, but I did experimenting with layers. I chose a picture that I have made at a walk on the Hummelberg. The sky was clear with few fluffy clouds. I took some photos but none I liked particularly. So it became my lab rat, for my experiments.The experiment looked like this.
I’ve edited the original picture three times with “Dynamic light“. First I added the filter “Dutch Light”, then “Green Tint” and in the end, “Normal”. The second step was to open the three images in the “Filterstorm“. I let the layer with the “Dutch Light” image visible just in the sky. I set the visibility of the picture, with the “Green Tint” filter, so that it can only be seen in the center. I put the last picture so that it remains visible in the lower part. Then i pressed the “Flatten Image” button save to “Photos Library” and open in “Camera+” to add the “Thick White” “Borders”.
I kinda like the result. the sky looks Beautiful the grass is not too green and the tree in the center stands out from the others.
Was the editing right or wrong? How do you do that? Let me know. Leave a comment!
