About a week ago, I took some pictures of the evening skyline from my back window. The camera’s automatic settings didn’t quite capture the glow in the sky, but the image had some potential:
I decided to have a go at processing it a bit in Photoshop. Following an article in the latest Digital Photo magazine, I played with the RAW image to create two new Photoshop images – one adjusted for the sky, one for the buildings in the foreground. It was then a matter of merging them together and tidying up the area where they met. Sort of. I need some more practice in using the brush tool, and a few more versions of this are probably needed to get the best out of this image, but I thought I’d show what I’ve done so far. I like the sky in this version, but the houses aren’t quite right yet.
I’ll post some more pictures when I’ve done some more work on them. And when I get a little more proficient in basic Photoshoppery.
