Rainy Day – Time to Practise

22 Oct

Raining hard outside so I decided to snap a photo of a pot plant and composite it onto a pile of rocks I photographed yesterday (as if it was a giant plant). I can’t say I’m happy with the result, but extra practice can’t hurt. A bit tricky extracting the cactus from the background, and masking three layers of rocks to blur the foreground, but it helps me get more familiar with GIMP.

  • Here are the three images I started with. The cactus is about 250mm (10″) high, sitting on the living room table and photographed from below.

  • The rocks are big ones, in a pile taller than my head.

  • A generic bit of cloudy sky, taken earlier in the year.
