lone tree on Christmas day

Another picture from the same Christmas day sunset shoot as the previously blogged snowman. I knelt down in the snow for this shot, and used the same Cokin mild ND2 graduated filter as before. Processing was simple, and with the addition of a slight clone-over, removed the distracting buildings behind the tree. Base copy slight […]


fire and ice

After a late Xmas lunch I spied a lovely sunset, so arming myself with borrowed wellingtons, set off across the Surrey fields and over frozen streams and fences to get some better views, as the area is heavily wooded.

Mist in the trees tutorial

For this misty mountain top landscape, I used just two flypaper textures, Raw Linen @ Linear burn setting 46% and opacity at 63% although I liked it, I didn’t need the texture, so I blurred it with Gaussian blur for a smooth finish. Necropolis was used in Overlay @ 55%, Opacity 56% So we come […]
