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?

Monterosso or Monterosso al Mare is the last of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre that I had the pleasure to visit.
Unfortunately minutes after we arrived the skies opened up and a downpour ensued. Monterosso is the only village that has a sand beach in Cinque Terre and despite the weather there were plenty of beach goers. Now I don’t usually wimp out because of the weather but it was late in the afternoon and the rain just wouldn’t let up so we decided to cut our visit short and head back to Manarola and have dinner. I did mange to get a few shots though 🙂
