before and after-flag added to building

22 07 2010

This image came about because I needed a red/white/and blue subject matter for a camera club that I belong too. The image was take on a very hot, humid over cast day as you can see. The challenge was to add the flag image to the building and make it look believable. The work was preformed in photoshop of course. I preformed some contrast corrections, color corrections, added a blue gradient to the sky and then started removing elements from the building(old painted sign, metal welches sign, shadows) as well as cleaning up some of the surroundings. Then I added the flag by rotating it to a horizontal and reshaping it with the transform tool, lowering it opacity and working with a displacement map to make it look like it was actually on the building.
