Some Fun with Photoshop

When it comes to creating things my abilities to put it bluntly really really suck. I have always had ideas in my head; images, stories, music and the like however unfortunately I have never been gifted with an artists streak. When it comes to art the best I ever been able to come up with is stick men, whilst not knocking the awesomeness that can be stick men when you have a beautiful visage in your mind that you would love to produce it can be somewhat disheartening to say the least. And when it comes to music as much as I would love to learn an instrument and tried once many years ago with guitar I do not seem to possess deft fingers, they are more suited to bludgeoning or poking than delicate acts which is counter productive in the art of music making.

That is why I have always loved photography so much we live in an incredibly beautiful world filled with unique and interesting things / moments and the ability to be able to capture and present these images allows me an outlet for creativity at least. When it comes to software I tend to have a knack for being able to figure out how to make something work the way that I want it, and as long as I am not creating something from nothing I can piece things together in order to make something different. With this under my belt I decided to have a little fun with photoshop.

The basis for the below is the image previously shared. There are 2 iterations; the first being the removal of the human element of the shot (some small buildings, the shed and the silo) and the second the addition of some buildings. The overall shot was a little light however given the exposure I think that I blended the elements reasonably well. It has been a very long time since I have done any digital manipulation and it was an enjoyable hour or so of work, so perhaps I may make this a more regular occurrence.
