first step is to remove the sky from around the Turtle or Tortoise (whatever it is :) )
STEP 2: the next step is to place the ocean picture into the background of the first image and position it so that the horizon in both images match up.
the next step is to add in a lighter part of the image to simulate the effect of natural sun light by using a elliptical markee tool.
in this step the bottom half of the sea image has been cut out and warped to create the illusion of the sea around the turtle/tortoise
the underwater image has been selected and placed under neath the turtle layers to create the background of the ocean"
in this step the bottom of the underwater image meets the sand a 30% mass has been used to lightly fade out the sea to look like it belongs onto of the sand the underwater image is then copied and placed infant of the bottom half of the turtle/tortoise agin the brush tool is used to lightly erase the sea image to revel the turtle/tortoise more clearly.
the next step is to blend the sea and can image together so they fit perfect.
the photographer has then adjusted the sky and added in an exposure <contrast<clarity and sharpness adjustment
in the next step the photographer has copied a landscape of hills and masked them onto of the tortoise/turtle(s) back.
after adjusting the colour using an LUT the photographer has added in a brushed on waterfall onto the turtle/tortoise to create drama.
in the final steps the photographer has used an over all LUT colour adjustment lay to change and correct the white balance on the image to keep all the colours the same before finishing the image by de saturating the colours also.
- in this step the frog has been imported and cut outand pasted onto of the lips on the background image
in this step the frog has been flipped using the free transform tool and positioned over the models tongue.
the bottom part of the frog has been cut off and masked over the tongue and blended with roughly 40% opacity to blend the tongue.
in this step the photographer has copied elements from the tongue and masked them onto the frog to add the texture of the tongue not the frog skin
