Into the sunset

A bit of play with Elements:)
Now - this is gorgeous! A super edit for the WWYD challenge!
Really well done.

@farmreporter Oh thanks Wendy! I do love faffing about in Photoshop, beats housework any day ...
August 25th, 2017  
I agree with you 100%! But, I really need to learn how to use my PSE - still a complete mystery to me.
August 25th, 2017  
@farmreporter All I did was copy the original and use the eraser to take out all of the picture I didn't want. It was fiddly around the reins of the horses but I zoomed in a lot and dropped the eraser tool to 1 pixel in places. Saved image. Then floated sunset pic on top, think I used Soft Overlay option. Clicked on layer with horses and darkened it to make silhouettes and then merged the two together. It's fiddly but fun!

Nice!

@marylandgirl58 Thank you! I wasn't imaginative enough to think of anything other than a sunset ...

A little bit 4 men of the apocalypse. Very cool.
August 25th, 2017  
Love the seeing-to, great work.
August 25th, 2017  
Great photo! Where did the cowboys come from??
August 25th, 2017  
Magic mix. Fav.
August 25th, 2017  
Nice one as long as there not the 4 horseman :) fav
August 25th, 2017  
Very very cool! Much better than housework! :)

@randystreat @golftragic @littleconnie @rjb71 @gardenfolk @777margo Thanks so much for such great comments, I certainly didn't expect such a good reaction. I so love faffing about with Elements.

@redandwhite Hi Cstherine and thanks. It's a combination of someone else's image (cowboys) and your take on the bg. If you check out tag wwyd160 you'll see what I mean.
August 25th, 2017  
Fantastic!!!!!

Fabulous shot!
August 25th, 2017  
Haha, love how you say "all I did" to Wendy, It sounds hugely complicated to me, much like housework to be honest :-)
August 25th, 2017  
I saw this for the WWYD challenge and it's absolutely perfect! I think you'll be the only entry because nobody can come close to doing what you did lol!!! Winner! I would so hang this on my wall as well. Very well done.
August 25th, 2017  
Superb edit xx
August 25th, 2017  
Wonderful. You have done really well with the image for the challenge. I am still trying to think what I will do
August 25th, 2017  
@gijsje @brennieb @carole_sandford @psychographer @sarahlth Thanks so much, I am so surprised at the reaction I've had to this edit - really pleased but still surprised!
August 25th, 2017

Super overall effect - I really like your idea of turning the horsemen into silhouettes.

P.S. Super patience to erase all the way around them!!
August 26th, 2017

Like a scene of the old western movies I liked to watch when I was a kid. ( But they where mostly B+W. )
August 26th, 2017  
WOW.... you've nailed this one. I think you may scare off anyone else from entering. haha...

@skipt07 @lynnz @kwind @moviegal1 @robz @tracie8266 @ziggy77 @pyrrhula Thanks sooo much - I am so surprised at the fantastic reception this has had - and I only took the picture of the sunset! Really appreciate all your tremendous comments:)
August 27th, 2017  
@not_left_handed @summerfield @deborah63 Thank you all very much indeed but Carole G has got this sewn up with Riders of the Storm and very deservedly so, much more work involved than this:)
August 27th, 2017  
Brilliant!
August 27th, 2017  
Lovely!
August 27th, 2017  
@taffy @islambad Thanks very much but 50% of the credit should go to the person who took the picture of the cowboys:)

Instant Fav.

I would never have known it was the same image - total transformation! Very well done!
