Don't know if anyone here has read any of Nebo's TRs but... since I still haven't dug my photos out of the almost dead computer, figured I'd throw this one into the mix. I don't remember exactly why I did it. Something to do with Nebo parting the 7 Seas Lagoon or something. Whatever. Here ya go. If memory serves... and it seldom does... this is a collage of four separate pics.

Blah sky

I didn't like the sky in this one.


Beach A 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So I found another sky I liked, photoshopped it into the picture and adjusted the 'opacity' of it. (I think that's the word?) until I liked how dark it was compared to the water.


Beach A 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Then I ran it through topaz to brighten it up some more. So this is what I ended with:

Here's my contribution. I asked earlier about replacing the sky in a pic that I took but didn't get a response. So, after a bit of googling I cam e up with something.

Looks good. You might want to add the same clouds into the reflection in the water.

In this case, I wouldn't bother. The majority of the clouds are above the level of the castle that is visible in the water, and those that would be visible are so wispy they wouldn't make much of an impression even if they were there. And adding them to that water would be a real bear, if you ask me. Building a mask around those castle spires is difficult enough as it is, what with all the fancy filigree and the blue turrets that are difficult to separate from the color of the sky.

Heres a few I messed around with on photoshop. Blurred out the background layer to give it a little bit of a 3D effect.

Pretty easy, just add some new pixels to the Test Track sign.



More difficult, desaturate the background to look old timey and change the train to brass to emulate the brass models.



This took some work, getting the perspective and scaling close enough to work.

Is there an online reference to do some of the Photoshop techniques I've seen in this thread? I have PS Elements 10. I took some Wishes pictures from the TOWL at BLT. I read on the DISboards to take pics of the castle before the fireworks because if you leave your shutter open long enough to get a nice shot of the fireworks, then the castle would be blurry due to it changing colors and being over exposed. I took the pre-fireworks pic of the castle and then took pics of the fireworks with a ND filter, tripod and leaving the shutter open 5-10 seconds. Separate they are decent pics but I want to put them together. Where can a novice go to learn how to do this? TIA and keep your pics coming. In the immortal words of Tony the Tiger, "They're great!"

Here's a Wishes photo I took during our Easter trip. I liked it, but wished the castle wasn't quite so dark.


Wishes Fireworks by BirdsOfPreyDave, on Flickr

So I processed it as you describe, above. I took a picture from earlier in the day and did some compositing. I use Photoshop CS6, but I would think the procedures would be the same in Elements.

First, I used the various selection tools to select the top spires on the castle from the pre-Wishes castle photo, and copied it into the fireworks picture. I then used the free-transform and move tools to stretch the new castle to the same size and position as the castle in the fireworks. Even though I had the camera on a tripod and hadn't moved it between shots, I wasn't able to get both castles to line up perfectly. I had to use the brush, clone stamp, and spot-healing brush tools to erase the old castle where it was showing.

While I like the looks of the second one much better, it's easy to get caught in having manipulated the photo. A real Disney aficionado will recognize that the castle is never lighted like this when the fireworks are actually going off.

Just started playing with Photoshop. Still learning my way around the software (not sure I'll ever figure it all out) but by trying various things I've come up with this.

Original:


Simple Chrome Filter:


And perhaps the one I like the best:


Now if I could just remember what I did to that third one.

Stupid boaters...

I got some great shots of the tall ships, but didn't like the small boats that got in the way. Here are some before/afters:

This was done mostly with the Clone Stamp Tool and spot healing brush.
