Fun with the sun… (or); Instead of just showing you the rest of those photos of the sunset over the San Francisco Bay that I took when I went with my mom into the hills above Berkeley during Christmas vacation, what if I intersperse them with copies upon which I worked some digital magic… part 3…

a 1 copy

Did it take you a moment, if you didn’t read the title of the post, to even notice that there was something weird about that photo of San Francisco?

a 1

Because the original photo looked like that.

a 2 copy

I love that just a few clicks… some copying, pasting, and flipping parts of an image… or, as I call it; ‘mirror imaging’, can make that up there…

Out of that, which was already a pretty nice photo, if I do say so myself.

a 3 copy

Just to mix it up, I did a ‘liquefy’ effect on a picture of the sky.

Man, I love Photoshop.

Whoops. On that one, I forgot to save it as a duplicate copy first, so I lost the original when I saved the mirror image changes. But you get the idea.

a 5 copy

I did a double mirror image on that one, to make the dark trees and mountain frame the sky.

It is easy to get carried away with the number of mirror images.

a 6 copy

I could have done another up and down one on that photo… and ended up with four suns…

a 6

But I restrained myself.
