0407 huntington roses-8525-Edit-2

This one falls under the category of “because I can.” I didn’t like the way the dirt looked, so I replaced it with brocade.

First, I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4‘s detail extractor on the red blooms to bring out more texture, then I painted back over areas where the effect was too bright.

Next, I imported the brocade photo and painted out the dirt and some of the leaves. I used the overlay blend mode.

I cleaned up noise in the image with Nik’s Dfine, and finished with a vignette to make the two composited images look more integrated.

A fun Photoshop experiment on a lazy Saturday.

Back to reality, this is the rose bed in front of the Huntington’s wonderful tea room. Both shots are from the same day.
