Wow, this is an excellent picture, Did you double expose it, use photoshop or digitally enhance it? how did u get the "illusion" effect? #200228

Patty Razonable 12/29/2004 10:08:47 PM

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!!
