Sint Rosa Festival – Center
Here is a shot from Sint Rosa Festival I took on the way to Gruizenkerk after I had a short brake to get some food. In the video, you can see that the original image has a different sky. I liked that image a lot, but the sky was too ”all over the place” which I didn’t like at all. I thought more about a calm sky. The kind of when it’s a beautiful evening with very soft clouds and no wind. I wanted to make something like that.
First I combined those images into a panorama as you can see in the video. Then send it back to Lightroom for double editing to boost the image. After sending it back to Photoshop I started with replacing the sky. It is a long boring, time consuming process, but the result is almost always worth it.
You can see me playing with different sky images as I’m trying to figure it out which would fit best. At the third try I was happy and really liked that soft look the image had. Also the colors fitted much better. When that was done I cleaned some rubbish from the ground, polished the image and was ready to do the final steps like watermark the image and resizing.
Please watch the video so that you can get the idea.
