Kalinjar. Some New Techniques

_DSC3673-copy

It’s been a while since I was on WordPress, and I need to see how I can get back to a routine where I post a couple of times a week, and get to read everyone’s posts.

I took up this old shot, or series of shots of Kalinjar Fort. This time, I blended the three exposures in Photoshop.

Then, I did a few adjustments using luminosity masks.

To brighten up the foliage, I used the sponge tool. This is a very interesting tool, but one that has  to be used sparingly.

Then, I added a few layers of colour dodging.

Finally, I used a tool that I had never used before – the perspective warp. I will need to practise this one quite a bit.

I also used the free transform to end it.

Yes, I also created my own Orton layer, to give it that slightly dreamy look..

So, there it is!

No presets

It was a huge file that I had, so I saved it as a .psb and not a .psd
