thanks, dawn and nice shot

deep depth shots are always fun to play with.

i whipped these out fairly quickly. the basic process is reversing the image to a negative and then wildly varying a curves layer. a few other things were done, but the basis for all of this is reverse image and curves.

Dual Bridges

I decided on two different approaches (moods) for this pic, so posted both. The steps involved were a bit haphazard, so once again, I can't retrace the procedurs......if anyone was interested that is!

Thanks

1stLite and Kraellin

Thanks to you both. I feel the second one is best also. Though what I am upset about is that I dont' remember how I arrived at it for sure.

Thanks!

Tyler

Nice work.

Can I make a critique?

If you still have the layered file, how about lightening the bridge layer's background greenery (the river line), then defringing the whole bridge layer to remove the white outline.

This will blend the bridge layer with the new sky perfectly yet still allow you to see the trees/bushes..
