Harnessing the wind.
This image was taken while holidaying in Australia, near a small town called Tenterfield.
Lucky for me it was just the right time of day, with that gorgeous golden late afternoon light.
I took several photos, some with vertical movement for an impressionist look and some sharp ones.
When I got back home and flicked through my photos, this windmill image was screaming out to be worked on, but none of the images looked great on their own.
I tried layering the blurry and sharp images together, as both had some good features.
I then did some eraser work on the blurred layer to bring through some sharp detail.
Finally I layered the windmill image with another image of some fields of barley, which I had photographed in the same vicinity, to add an interesting texture.
I was very happy with the outcome, and this method has since become my trademark look.
