another interpretation

We have a drought in our part of Australia, so its good to see water again. Ive not changed the water to much. Just light changes using selective colour. Did blur the water a tad, ran the clone iron over the jeans ... Tell.

Yeah Tell, that water stuff may be scarce but beer is still plentiful, not so good for the plants but at least I have no fear of dying of thirst
Hmmm, Goose... interesting take there on tackling the problem...never would've thought of that lol

Wendy, I got your message and here is some more detail about my earlier post. I have stuck notes on what I did in with the attatchments here.
You may want/need to use different values in your curves and mask adjustments than I have used in my examples to get the result you like... just play around with it

Quick Mask Question

Littlecoo,

How did you get such a good selection using the quick mask tool?

Thanks,

Wendy

I painted it on with a fine, hard black brush (and lotsa swearing) to the fiddly areas around the leaves and the rest with a larger brush size. Then cleaned up my lines with a white brush (erases). I really didn't worry to much about precision at this stage, I just wanted to get a selection for the curves mask.

I'd almost have to agree that the green water does look the most natural in spite of being somewhat ugly. Nonetheless, I went with bluer water and included a hint of clouds in the reflection. Beyond that, concentrating on putting more emphasis on the subject herself was more rewarding.

Created a copy of the water and then used hsl adjustment to the water area. Chose a more subtle greeny blue. Levels adjustment also
