60 minutes of work in 12 seconds!

Several years ago while in Guadalajara I took a couple quick shots of an amazing multi-piece sculpture named La Estampida – The Stampede. I spent a long time cleaning up the image, fixing the brightness, contrast, and color balance, then removing unwanted things from the background and making the sky look better. Since getting Luminar 4 I have used its automated sky replacement many times, so I went back to this image and added a sky that gives a reason for the stampede! Then I used Photoshop to create a GIF that shows the process – from the original camera shot to the finished image. But it is 65MBytes, so I have to use a link. Click on the image to see the process from start to finish
