Amanda Price September 16, 2005

Wow! What a great work of art! You have great PS skills and I think you're awesome for putting such detailed descriptions of how you accomplish the effects so that we can learn from you! One note: might be just me, but the biggest balloon is distracting. It looks washed out or something. I would take it out, but leave the others. Just my 2 cents. :) #1846263

Ok..this is my first attempt to really digital darkroom. Remember the Hot Air Balloon Festival we went to. Well where we camped was an old barn. So I went inside & took the image of the window from inside looking out.

In PS I copy & pasted several different balloons from different images I took of the balloons. Then I decreased the opacity of them to look like they were really on the outside of the glass window. Then I went to adjustment>image>equalize. Then I did layer>new adjustment layer>gradient map. Final step was just adjusting the curves & contrast a bit. Just wanted to try something really different for myself:):)
