refreshing stop on tour of Perthshire

I spent the first three days of this week on a short driving tour with my parents – based in Pitlochry in Perthshire.  Lots of amazing scenery and we were not deterred by the rain showers.

One stop was at The Hermitage on the River Baan for a lovely walk under very tall fir trees to this waterfall

I took 8 photos with the intention of then creating a composite – something I had done several times in the old days of printed photos.  I found the digital process harder than the printed one because of the ability to change the size of photos but I needed to change all of them by the same amount.

I like that I can see that this is made up of several photos – I created a version where I blended the edges but preferred this version. have you created any digital composite photos and did you blend the edges?

This is my image for the Crazy Days of Summer weekly challenge – this week the theme is refreshing and I think this fits the bill nicely.  Check out how others have interpreted the theme over the next few days on Alicia’s blog

Next week the theme is water – as I take several photos of the river and the sea each week I think my problem will be in deciding which few to choose.

Wow - amazing job on that! I need to redo my PSE class, as I've forgotten everything it seems.

That is so cool!! I love how that looks! I have no idea how to do a composite like that.

I've never tried a composite like that. I have let PSE combine my pictures but it always blends the edges so it looks like one picture. This is really cool and such a beautiful waterfall!

I remember doing it with prints when I went to school, many years ago, but I never did a composite digitally. Good job.

I like the compositve - I've not done that before with my digital photos.

This is lovely, no, I have not done a digital one but want to try one of a cloudy sky.

That's clever - way beyond my capabilities though.
Did you have to adjust perspective as well as size? I like how it's obviously a composite with a ragged edge too.

I love the composite! I've never tried it - very cool! And, yes your pics fit the bill for 'refreshing'!

Just beautiful. I love your composite. I've tried it before with little success, but this idea of a hodge podge of photos to complete the puzzle is very cool. Thanks for the inspiration and for linkin up to our crazy days of summer photo challenge!
