I have no clue what you did as I read through it...I would have to watch or take classes to understand one single thing you did. Nor do I know what Photomatix 3 is. But I do know this...what you did is just amazing Jonathan.

:aww: You know I`d teach you if I could :pc: but I see Sandie pointed you towards some Youtube tutorials somehwere,that`s not a bad place to learn some stuff actually Karen,follow them step by step and you`ll pick up as you go along.
I learnt everything I know from magazines and videos.

Thanks :cuddle:

Photomatix 3 is a HDR editing program btw >>> [link]

Jonathan what magazines did you try. I was thinking of going and buying one of those CS5 books for dummies, LOL! No seriously I may go wander around the bookstore tomorrow to try and see if I can understand one or two.

Most of the tutorials and tips I`ve got have been through the monthly magazines I buy Karen,been having them for nearly 4 years now :reading:
Never bought any of those books but you should def check them out,some kind of classes if there were such a thing near you would be great too...I agree with what you said,it`s much easier if someone is physically there to hold your hand and guide you through it :pc:
Check those books out though at the very least.

I keep wanting to hit a like button. I get my FB & DA mixed up. Damn I like hitting a like button. I will and I am going to go online and see if one of the local community colleges have a class that is not horrible expensive.
On another note...will read and get back to soon. I just got a great new book and I am off the net to go read...hugs and good night.

fantastic mate!
i really couldn't find the right inspiration to process the image (even though it's a good shot, i just didn't have a clear view in mind of how it should like), but you did a great job!
i thought abaout adding clouds as well, but didn't have enough time to do so..
But this works so well!

nice job on this, I like the added drama of the sky and the warming filter you added, I also like that you took the bird out of center and moved in a more desirable position

Thanks Bri,enjoyed doing it,I`ve seen tutorials where most people overlay them with masks,which is maybe the best way to do it but I did it the old fashioned way I know,overlaid (I think I used soft light,have to add that in comments) and then cut around the rockfaces and birds :)
