third thursday challenge

I'm linking in with Brenda for the third Thursday challenge.
The idea is to try something new. 
I don't normally do much editing so I thought I'd try layering 2 photos together. 
And also add and effect.

I quite liked this effect too... but perhaps the seagull is a little dark?

These are the original photos below.
....made from these.

Anyway, I had a bit of fun fiddling with my photos!


  1. Oh, Leanne - this is a great challenge! There are so many things that can be done with post-processing and it is fun to "fiddle" and see what you can come up with. The addition of the seagull gives the image a great focal point. I like the effect - even though the gull is dark, there is a wonderful mysterious quality to the modified image that I really like. Thanks so much for playing along with the Third Thursday Challenge!

  2. That's a great combination Leanne. Brenda is right, the sea-gull is a great focal point and draws the eye in. So good to try something new!!

  3. Nice one, Leanne! The seagull really does add to the image. I like the colors in the first image better, I think. The sky has a bruised quality that makes it feel like there's a storm coming.

    You've inspired me to try this myself. I have lots of beach photos and quite a few of seagulls, too - always trying to capture the bird in the right spot for the perfect composition but seldom succeeding. I never thought of trying to combine the two in post-processing.

  4. Oh this is nice! I love the way they combined so well together!

  5. This is awesome! You know I have never layered two photographs like this before? I only layer textures on my images. Looking at your shots is making me think of new things.. :) exciting!

  6. Combining the two images together seemed to frame and give perspective to the seagull. It seems the only limit to post processing is one's imagination. Good job on this one!
