This is my second try at creating photo art from learning sessions at Photoshop Artistry, which I wrote about in my previous post. This is the famous Mamounia Hotel in Marrakech, Morocco, a shot that I took back in 2005. The first photo below is the original, which is kind of bland. The second is the “artistic version.” The clouds were added from a Laos photo I took earlier this year. I added some background texture from the PA course, and I did a little tweaking in Photoshop. I’m still such a beginner at this stuff; I’ve got a lot to learn. The beauty of the course is that I have all the time I need–it’s a lifetime membership. We’ve got a 5-week break from school coming up beginning next week, so I’m really going to be spending a lot of time with this. I’ll have some more art to post later.
