Random Photo Memory: Angkor Wat Temple Tweak
I just realized that I’d not showcased a single one of my Angkor Wat photos for my Random Photo Memory corner. Shame on me. For there are precious few sights in the World that can compare to the splendor of Angkor Wat.
Ah but photography-wise, I wasn’t so lucky the few days I wandered amid these majestic temples last May. The sky was a ho-hum pale blue at best (see insert photo below), and that was when it wasn’t pouring down sheets of rain.
But no problem. With a bit of Photoshopping (actually, I’ve long used an equally powerful graphic software that’s less than a fifth the price of spendy PS: PhotoImpactX3). The trick? Find a photo with a nice big chunk of spectacularly stormy sky; grab those crumbly temples with the “Magic Wand”, and plop them on the new sky background.
Viola! A much more dramatic image worthy of these legendary temples.
