my attempt

Hiya,
I'm new to the forum, but I decided to go ahead and see what I could do with the skiing man anyway.
I did some selective sharpening along the edge of the water on the rooster tail. I also selectively desaturated along the white water to make it look like a more natural spray. To add the blue to the water I created a new layer with the blending mode on color, used the Render:Clouds filter with colors set to turquoise and dark blue, gaussian blurred that layer for less abrupt color shifts, set the opacity to about 50%, and then selectively removed color from the spray. (When I use the word selectively, I am talking about using a brush to paint in/out the layer mask.) I'm using Photoshop CS2.
Now, after all this, I hope I manage to upload the image right
Cheers,
AutumnRae

phil,

i'm not real sure if these are crocs or gators, but if you have either in your swimming pond, why, good luck it always surprised me when visiting florida to see some lake or pond near a residential area with gators swimming and sunning themselves so near to where humans lived, but the natives dont seem to hardly even notice. and when i say 'natives', i mean both the humans and the gators

autumnrae,

welcome to RP!

nice job

Craig

Craig, the movie "Jaws" scared me out of the water decades ago, but your croc/gators make me hum it all over again.... dum dum, dum dum, dum dum...

Your image works very well.


AutumnRae -- welcome to RetouchPro! Your image looks good, and your workflow sounds "differently interesting". You uploaded correctly first time -- that's better than I did when I started!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!
"Differently interesting"? Hmm, I think I'll take that as a compliment... My workflow usually only makes sense to me. Its a strange combination of actual studied techniques, mixed with the chaos of being partially self-taught. I tend to use a ton of layer masks when I work, mostly because then I feel like I'm painting right on the image. I guess it makes me feel like more of an artist and like less of a digital slave.
Cheers,
AutumnRae

AUTUMRAE...EXCELLENT! I like the additional transparency in the spray. Good job and welcome aboard!

DUV.. It's got a lot of impact! I could see it used as the background for an ad in a water sports magazine. Adding more black affects the viscosity of the water too, it looks thick like he was skiing in oil, but the spray brings you back to reality.
