I did this a while back, but wasn't all that happy with the results.

Combined three photos from the Library of Congress and had a lot of fun doing it

Fine work Lorraine,
Being kissed by a flying fish takes imagination.
I wish I was light enough to sit on water lilies and not go down like a rock.

How are you going with the Xmas restoration?
It must be tempting to color.
But that's doubling the work on a restoration full of hard slog.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your comments. You make me laugh.

The Christmas restoration is driving me crazy, so I went back to KissyFish just to keep my sanity.

Best wishes to you for a Happy Holiday season.

I really like your pic Lorraine, and it's a definite hit on the Maggie theme . Maybe you could share your tips on your water work - the toes in the water and the ripples look great.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for your nice comments. I used a water swirl (instructions below) to create the toes in water. I placed it on a layer over her toes set to linear light blend mode. Then I erased, repositioned portions on other layers, dodged and burned the swirl until it looked right to me. Did the same thing with the swirl over the fish. Also, I added the bubbles made from a bubble tutorial.

The ripples were created by using the PS ripple filter. I just kept trying until got the right look. Used some dodge and burn to make a more realistic look with the lighting.

I followed a tutorial to create a water swirl effect:

1. Open 500 px by 500 px image. Filled with solid black or white.

2. Set foreground and background color to black and white, respectively

4. Filter/Render/Clouds

5. Filter/Distort/Twirl/angle 776 (or whatever seems right for your use).

6. Duplicate Twirled Layer. Make a rectangular selection to select the center area of twirl. Copy that to a new layer.

7. Edit/Transform/Distort to make twirl look flat.


I hope this helps and have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Lorraine
