Default 3..2..1.. LAUNCH

A bubble maker stomper rocket ship.. too much fun

This image has a story.. I made it from two images. One image had the launch I wanted but Sara had her back to me. The other had her facing me but with a squib launch. I was shooting manual so I had two pictures with pretty much identical exposures. I did an auto-align and then had dual masks where I painted out the back facing image of Sara and painted in the front facing Sara. Then I ran some basic settings, high filter etc. The final was to use a Kodachrome filter which punches up the saturation levels a fair amount and contrast. Since the image was shot in shadow of the late afternoon, it was cool and somewhat flat.

Love the stopped action, Michael. You did a convincing job with the edit. Is auto-align a feature in Photoshop?

Yes, it is a most useful feature for taking out heads, eyes and letting you paint in a new one assuming you took more than one image to start with. I have also used it to take a picture of a monument with people, wait a few minutes, take another and then another, each with people in different places. A bit of work with autoalign and my paint brush, and the people are all gone

I'm going to do a blog entry on this one as a sample but not today.
