It’s Photo Friday and I’m lovin’ summer!

Warm tones at twilight.

This is a blend of 2 images.

♦ The background is of prairie grass near a small slough facing the sunset during the last minutes of the summer solstice.  Camera was set at aperture priority 2.8 / 70-200 Canon L lens / Canon 5D Mark 2 and focused on the grasses in the foreground with flare from the setting sun.  The background is straight out of the camera with no editing.

♦Top image of the child was taken earlier in the same evening as she was walking on a gravel road using the same camera at aperture priority 2.8 with more direct side lighting.  I did some touch-up with the face blending and softening the highlighted area on the side of her face, lightened the shadow detail and used Kubota action, Golden Delish.  Dragged image to the background and opacity was decreased to allow the background grasses to show through and used the eraser tool to blend the transition between the two images.
