One from my Goofing Around folder. In the spring, I took a long weekend trip to Nashville, and one of the places I visited was the Parthenon replica. It was an overcast gray day, and I wasn’t really happy with any of the pictures I took, so I stored them (cuz you NEVER delete any pics!).
Got an idea a few months later to try changing it to a night time scene with flood lights illuminating the building.
Didn’t quite like how it looked so I saved it and removed the lights. A month or so later, I downloaded some pics of the moon from the Nasa website (they have an awesome collection of public domain pics) and dropped one in. Still not happy, so I saved it again.
A few days ago, I came across a stock picture of 3D model holding a magnifying glass, and remembered a tutorial I saw (think it was Corey Barker or Dave Cross who posted it) using one. Decided to use it to show the underlying original image, a little bit and Liquify to bulge the view through the glass. Viola!
Now I’m happy with it.
