Sailing the Sea of Blue (Sailing) – Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Ursula Abresch
Today’s photo of the day is Sailing the Sea of Blue. Ursula really creates a sailing wonderland with the composite image in Adobe Photoshop. Please read her story below to find out exactly how it was made and then check out her website here www.ursulasphotos.com and you can purchase her images here http://www.greatbigcanvas.com/category/abresch-ursula/
The intention of this photo is to provide an impression of the landscape, or, better, the seascape, in the Vancouver, British Columbia, area.
This is a composite of tree separate images, 2 made on the same afternoon in late October 2012 at Mt. Seymour Provincial Park close to Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada), the other one made at home in Trail, British Columbia (Canada) a few weeks before. The first two photos are (1) a view of a sailboat on the ocean, with distant shores showing on the horizon; (2) a picture of clouds, from the same location, but a little earlier when the sky was clearer and the colors more blue. The third photo is a closeu p of gently moving water in a pan.
I combined them in January 2013. The close up of water in the pan had the colors I wanted overall, the blues, greens, and whites that typify Vancouver as a city. The sky photo was very similar in color, and the two blended well. The sailboat photo was rather grey overall, and I used the color from the water close up to color it to the same as the rest. Besides working on color, I simply blended the tree photos using the sky picture for the top, the water close up for the middle and bottom right, and the sailboat picture for the bottom left.
Equipment: Nikon D7000 with Sigma f/2.8 150mm macro for the water close up, with Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6.
