You are most certainly doing this community a great service. Such wonderful and VERY helpful tutorials. This one is unique. Even after taking a Digital imagery course what I thought i knew about photoshop ceases to amazing me as there's always something new you can do with the tools you use. I'm just becoming a fan of layers.

Almost a 'duh' moment but I always got mad at how I'd want certain aspects of the photo to change while the rest remained as is. Perfect presentation of this. Thank you.
Try my new layer tute it works with layers better than these old ones!

sometimes we must learn older ways to help us grow and then learn the newer ways :) Personally I loved that tutorial and have used it a bit in my newest photos "Warmth of yes."

Thanks so much for this...have given it a try & linked it to my attempt. Not my attempt is very good. Can't work out how to get the correct exposure on the rocks in the creek.


Its reasonably easy when you're shown how!!!!
I think is probable that you have blown out the rocks when taking the shot.. all that dark bush will swing the exposure the wrong way.. do you know how to bracket.. set it in the menu -1 0 and +1 and set the camera to multi shot and take three shots and the camera will vary the tree exposure.. having said that a tripod and taking two shots.... one as you have then switch the camera to manual and take the second shot at -2 in your view finder. It will be dark but the rocks will be exposed better.

this was actually bracketed but I wasn't using a tripod so the shots don't line up very well :(

Lesson learnt!!! Take tripod! We're going to go back during the week now the kids are back at school. Also its been raining a fair bit up here so it will worht another visit in next day or 2 because there'll be more water through the hole in the bridge!
That's amazing!
sorry this may sound really stupid, but i dont usually alter my photos. anyway what does 'RAW' mean??
