Beginning (Issues)

On “Beginning” I had several challenges, with masking being number one. I used Calculations on the trees, house, land image. Not perfect. Too many twiggy branches.

I was wondering how I would make the new sky a gradient so I just lowered its opacity and let the sky from the image below show through.

The woman’s lighting wasn’t right so I worked a lot with that; Hue/Saturation, Levels, Vibrance. I also made some shading gradients.

The fence was very cool so I tried to warm it up. And fix the lighting issues.

I used Color Range to select the owl. Worked pretty good but it took patience. I did Curves on him and lowered his opacity so he didn’t stand out too much.
