Hey folks,

here is another edit/composite using AP

Result (work in progress):

Source:

At the moment, I am not quite happy about the masking of the palm leaves :57_cry:
Refining the mask crashed Affinity Photo several times, so I tried my best with manual masking, but I am still not where I want to have it - maybe I will have to spend another hour to get it right...

If you have some good hints about better masking, I would be happy :16_relieved:

Besides, what do you think about the edit?

Cheers, Marc

I like your sunset/rise imposed on the sky. However, I find that the Swan looks wrong. It looks to be the wrong size. I'm not sure what size it should be though. Are Mute Swans found in Cambodia? I can find no indications that they are. Perhaps it is this that jars.

I didn't see any swans there, but lots of monkeys who try to steal your water :4_joy: I used the swan, so the pond doesn't look that empty. Because I only use my own photos, I haven't found any alternative to put onto the pond. I will try to resize the swan, but compared to the water lily in the background I can not shrink him too much. 

Thank you very much for your thoughts and have a great evening :1_grinning:

I would consider adjusting the white point of the source image to be warmer toned to match the sunset sky. As it is now, the highlights and over all tone are clearly from a few hours before or after mid day, so the source image looks too cold/blue in its tones. 

I would try Split toning the image with much warmer highlights and slightly warmer shadows.

Hey Ronny,

I will adjust the overall temperature when I am back home. I already applied a lens filter but it seems that it wasn't enough :7_sweat_smile:

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
