How did you combine the photos? I can see how you would be able to take surfer from multiple pictures, but how did you combine the wave? #3089534

Chris Welch July 27, 2006

Gregory, the wave is a composite from the 4 photos. I use layer mask in PS on each of the layers, and selectively erased portions to make a full wave. The bottom layer is on the left, and I add layers and erase sections to blend the photo.

Each section of the wave behind the surfer makes up a part of the full wave. If u look carefully just below the fourth shot u can see the border between erased areas. Sloppy PS technique on my part!

BTW, the photos in your gallery of the white spires are fantastic!!! #3090085
