Scotney Castle Process

My version of Old Scotney Castle by Ryan Photography for June’s Before and After Challenge.

First, I brought Ryan’s picture into Photoshop and filled in the people and a few branches at the top of the image. Next, I opened the image in OnOne Effects and added an HDR evening metal effect, which I altered to suit. I brought it back into Photoshop and imported a sky. I masked out the original sky to let the new one show through. To tone down some of the color and make it less Disney like I added a black and white filter layer and masked out some of it to let the color show through in places. For fun I imported two eagles, masked them out and placed them in the sky.

      Thank you Eunice. It really pays to learn “darkroom” tricks in Lightroom/Photoshop.

      Thanks. Layering to exchange skies can be done in Photoshop and onOne. Doing thmasking correctly is key. Lots of tutorials around for that.
