Description

Used CS5 for this. I didn't realize that this needed a conversion to 8 bits to use the distort filter. After applying ocean ripple, I used liquify to further distort the water. I painted a faint burn along the rock border but was hoping you would enlighten me on a more creative way to 'prep' the image before copy-paste begins. Was looking for a better defined look where the reflection begins. I can see that there are a lot of details and much experimentation with this to get a true feel for
that near 'perfect' image.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.33, ExposureTime: 1/400 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 200.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
