In todays post i will be showing a before/after to be able to see what the difference between these 2 pictures is after i processed it.

Here is the before/after image:



This image is a merged image from 2 pictures combined, through the use of luminosity masks the blending and some additional processing was done.

I took this picture in 2011 when i was on a road trip with my dad traveling through the United States of America. Back then i did not have much knowledge on taking photos or post processing accept getting a sharp picture and to shoot in RAW. Finally i can process my pictures into something beautiful that reminds me of how it was the day that i was there with my dad.

Here is a little sneak peak behind the scenes of my layer panel in photoshop CC.


Really cool to see how many information is available and can be pulled out of a RAW file.

I used Lightroom 5 for just the basic adjustments, removing Chromatic Aberration and Lens correction. I then imported the 2 images into Photoshop CC as layers and used the Auto-align function. From then on the Luminosity masks were used to create the final image.

You can now download this image for free as a background for your computer or any other device down below, and feel free to share it with your friends.
