Years ago I took a series of fruit tree pictures but I hated the sky. So I tried a trick from Leanne. I tried to make major changes to it. Please tell me whether you think my work is believable, and if it does the trick, or whether I should stick to the original.
Sometimes the skies, even in the spring just look dirty. Sometimes they are stunning. So I borrowed a stunning sky from the following picture, and I copied it into the picture you see above.
The next thing I had to do was fill in the area between the part of sky that I pasted in and the tops of the trees. That was hard work. I started with the cloning tool, and got all kinds of extra tree tops, ugly dirty sky, layers of clouds, and odd colors in odd places. So I used the brush tool and picked up a light color from the sky and erased the weird layers of clouds.
I am not super pleased with the left side of the sky, but I’m not sure how to make it look any better. So what do you think?
