Along For the Ride

Uploaded: January 28, 2010


This was shot outside in afternoon light. Layers in CSPS3, converted to b&w, brought back the colors with layer mask>reveal all, used replace color to change the magenta on the girls clothes to red, used extract filter to remove distracting bg, added a texture layer, used grunge brushes to add more texture to foreground. Just to let anyone starting with DD, know how I did this.

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/4 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 80.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 30D
