Writing with Light

Into the Drink

Here’s something a little different from me. I’ve never done any composites in Photoshop but I thought I would try my hand at it. This image was taken in Monterosso just before the rain started. I loved the scene and the composition but the light was flat and grey when I brought it into Lightroom.

I started tweaking it a little bit and then thought this would look good if the clouds were darker and the feel was more ominous. I then brought the image into OnOne Perfect Effects and started working on getting that ominous look. I was happy with the way it was shaping up but it was still missing something. I then jumped over to PS and added my final touch. Can you guess what it is?

    • Thanks Jane and yes you are absolutely right it is the pirate flag. Would you believe though that the flag was actually just down the beach in another spot all on its own. Honest.

  14. Ha! I guessed right. That Skull and Crossbones is a nice touch. Ominous, dark, sinister. Great mood, Edith.
