Thanks to Lori and Ivan.. Glad that you like my photos.. Yours are simply better.. TO Lori,
not much effects applied , I am not that good in PS..:).. Here is some detail..
1.the clouds is original, Shot from Cockpit at 37.000 Ft in real night flying. used as Back ground.
2.The lightning is original, cropped from another photo, taken during night thunderstorm.. because of intense contrast its easy for selections, copy drag and paste on the clouds Photo ( Back Ground ).
3. Aeroplane was cropped from another photo taken at Apron in the Airport, selections also easy because shot with very different contrast back Ground , First Select the Back ground with Magic wand then- select invert- to get the plane only (easy way).,cut off the landing gear, copy drag, resize and free transformed ( Scale mode)paste on the Clouds Photo.
4. Aeroplane traces is manually drawn with pen tools, easily done. only two straight lines.. adjust the pen size and choose white color.
5. Now finnishing effects: Adjust:
Selective color/
Color balanced
Thats All ... No worries. Lets Shares.
