Marple to New Mills..Pshop homework

Shep the sheepdog cloud is hovering.......no its not a pshop fiddle....now this was an exercise in copying layers and switching the blend modes then using the old alt/click on a mask and painting back in some of the blend mode effect...I know complete gobbledygook but try just try copying the layer, switch the mode to whatever, mask that all out with a black mask and paint through it with a soft low opacity brush, which should bring the copy layer effect back.....er..yes.......in this the sky was blown, blend mode multiply, now then......shift/ctrl/alt/e on a PC to get a merged layer copy, copy that, screen blend mode it,black mask and the old railway carriage, that was black had the shadow detail painted back....keep going...you can always chuck it in the bin once the tears start welling up...well I expect this homework to be on my desk by Monday morning, I am armed with a chalk laden board duster for anyone thinking of slacking, your chances of being this years Ink Monitor are at stake!

Ah yes the days of a well aimed chalk duster flying across the classroom hitting the chattering pupil at the back. Teacher would be had up for ABH these days ;o)

nice shot btw ;o)
Not sure about all the technical info.David but I certainly like the shot and the depth from front to back you have achieved.
Heavy atmosphere and very well composed !
I was lost at switching modes...fine image again David.
WHAT?! Way OTT, but what the heck, it's a great image and grabs you by the........!
I have just such memories Dave .... and that damned school milk left by those mammoth hot radiator pipes to get warm.... Oh nearly forgot it's a goodun. richard
Look David I just call it twiddling. The end result is good!
