Seagull in Seattle

By | 2016-12-18T17:01:04+00:00 August 13th, 2012|87 Comments

This is a composite image … I photographed the Seagull in Berkeley, CA last year while doing some work with +Peachpit, and the backdrop is the Seattle skyline photographed from Kerry Park. Just having some fun with +onOne Software (Perfect Mask and FocalPoint) and thought I’d share the results :)

I also used one of +Trey Ratcliff‘s awesome Lightroom presets for a finishing touch (this one was “Cross – The Dog”). Here’s a link to his presets if you want to check them out: http://bit.ly/MUNVD6
