Take Flight   Featured in Digital Darkroom #025

Take Flight
This is a composite I made in Photoshop from 2 seperate images. I shot the airplane on the ground and cut it out-minus the landing gear. The second picture was shot earlier out the window of the same plane over the Andes Mountains. I added a blurr filter behind the engines to make it look like jet exhust.

Thanks, Don and Siete. Don, I simply used the lasso tool in PS 7.0 to select as closely around the areas of the plane I wanted to keep. Then I cut it out and pasted it into the photo of the Andes. Then I used the eraser tool with a soft-edge brush to clean the edges up. Next, I messed with the color to make it look like the same time of day for both layers. Finally, I used a gausian blur tool behind the engine to simulate exhaust.
