I used my normal recipe for the double exposure. Of course just like food some recipes need to be tweaked depending on what you are adding to the mix, something I learnt with this image and with using gluten free flour in baking.
What I didn’t like about this first shoot was that it plainly looked bad and flat. The merging of two exposures looked too simplistic and basic.
I completely threw my workflow out the window and used select colour range to select shadow areas in the single tulip and used these selections to create a mask on the fields of tulip image.
I edited the image using topz filters; BW, Denoise, and detail and a curves adjustment layer.
Do you think this is better than the original version? Let me know what you think.
