These are actually two photos combined together in PSE 3.0.
The photograph of my aunt and uncle was taken in October where I would use the paint bucket & paint brush to blacken out the BG in order to blend in with the falls. Then applied the screen layer, copied and paste onto the fall image.
The Opaekaa Fall image was enhanced with color variations and applied a small amount of simplifier 3, unsharp mask and flatten image to create the effect.
Thank you very much for you interest and comment and is greatly appreciated!
Mahalo & Aloha!!
Patty

This is marvelous work, Patty! I love how you did this. You really captured the warmth and dignity of your aunt and uncle. I can see why they loved it. I'll bet the woven matt really looks lovely with all the green! Best of luck in the next round!
