  • Cloud Critters

    Hi All, this was fun

    Started with a photo of sky and clouds

    Used Liquify, Clone and some moving of sections of clouds around.

    I like the idea that when one looks at clouds, we each see different things. Some will see figures where I didn't put any ... kind of like real life clouds ... then there is the mystery of what the figures are. And the placement and definition of the figures is not quite perfect. Like the nature of clouds ...

    Ooooh, I see a bear, and a ghost, and a .... Lovely job, Roger!

    Great idea! Used to "find things" in the clouds when I was a kid (only take the time once in a while nowadays), but hadn't even thought about the fact that PShop gives the Power to make my own Cloud objects.

      Thanks CJ,

      I have a sometimes twisted, kinda dry, sometimes punny, layers of perception kind of humor. It gets me into trouble some times when people don't know that I am kidding. The idea of these clouds - like the clouds landscape that almost doesn't look like clouds at the bottom - really makes me smile

      And just so you know, I really do appreciate you. You take the time to respond to everyone, and sweetly. Thanks

        Very fun Roger! Every time I look at it (and I've looked a few times now), I see something new. I can almost see the clouds moving and transforming before my eyes. Very creative idea - and (of course) a great implementation!

          Roger great use of the liquify filter and what fun! I swear I see a duck, a dog complete with collar, a teddy bear, a cat, and an elephant in there. Great job and bonus points for being the first to attempt this challenge and double bonus points for getting the viewer to interact with the image as they try to see what critters they can find!

            Thanks You two and CJ are of the cream here. Both in talent and generosity.

            Maybe we should have a cloud challenge ... it would be fun and interesting to see and share the different fluffy cloud twists and turns of our varied nimble minds in action ...

              That's a great idea and really sounds like a fun challenge. I'll talk to Doug about it.

                Realistic Clouds?
                by Jakaleena
                I've seen a few people add clouds to their background that look pretty realistic. One example is on DJ's page in a picture titled "Muscles". I've tried to duplicate the effect, but have had no luck.

                Anyone want to let me in on the secret?

                gday all, this is what we'd be seeing if jupiter was closer to the sun and we lived on one of its moons :-) .

                what do you think..the haze on the left looks a bit odd .Its a result of trying to extract the clouds from the sky background....

                Creative Interpretations: Sky
                by Drach
                Hiya all =)

                I thought I start something myself and found that nice photo I shot a while ago.
                I'm curious to see what you all can make of it.
                To give it a start I made my own interpretation using oilpainting, crosshatch and fresco + posterize on the flipped frame.

                Compositing clouds into the sky
                by buso23
                I have this image that was shot on a cloudless day and would like to add some clouds so that the sky is not plain blue and boring.

                Any ideas how to do this ?

                I have struggled with blending modes and blending options but couldn't add the clouds so that they blend in realistically....

                This one is a complete fantasy scene put together from 5 photos...

                I'm pretty happy with it. What do you guys think?...
