behind the scenes

This shows the development of the shot from http://365project.org/ltodd/365/2014-10-12

1. the starting image has lovely lines but a very busy background so I decided to isolate and emphasise the acrobat.

2. changed the shirt to red and cut out the girl from the background and located some butterfly stock images from Jassy2012 at http://www.deviantart.com/art/Stock-Butterflies-Red-32474726
3. duplicate and reflect the girl and place some clouds and textures on thre layers below the girl.

4. add the butterflies and some colour balance and tonal textures over the whole image.
Great shots. The final image with the smoke is cool.
