This is my ninth image for my project Y27. I took it - Monday, August 24th while leaving the dog park, that is right down the street in our neighborhood.
It is actually a combination of two photos. I first snapped this one:
Then when looking at the playback on my LCD realized it had exposed for the sky. So I changed a few settings then re-snapped it to get this one:
Now once I got back home on the computer I realized I liked the sky better in the first one, so just decided to combine the two!
I opened up the dark, good sky one in photoshop, then placed the second good shot one of the boys on top of it - which created a second layer. Then using a layered mask, I erased the over exposed sky on the top layer (the one you can see kyle and harpo) to reveal the good exposed sky beneath it. Then after a little croppping -to get rid of a big tree to the left that didn't line up very well- I got my end result, wa-la! Now would you have ever noticed if I didn't tell you??
:-) Thanks for reading!
