When I go on-line to find information I frequently land in someone's blog, so I wanted an on-line identity to thank and interact with the many people who provide me with needed information and inspiration.
As it is a water dragon, I decided to send it on a little vacation up the California coast to the Pt. Arena Light house. It really seems to be enjoying the view from the cliff.
Here is what I did for my edit:
I edited both photos using the Topaz Simplify plug-in with these settings:
-Painting => Painting IV =>Finishing
Touches => Transparency at 45% => Global
Adjustment => Adjust => Dynamics at 125% =>
Structural Boost 125%
Then I horizontally flipped the position of the dragon and layered it onto the light house photo.
Next, I used the paint brush to remove the background from the dragon photo. And that was it!
Now it is time to see what everyone else has created with their edits over at
