WHICH WAY IS UP? aka MAGIC CARPET
I have had a frustrating time trying to find out how to change the orientation of a photo which came in on its side. I still don't really know how I got there but it has worked! It is now the right way up.
The source was a tree reflected in the pond at Wakehurst Place (now banned by us because it has decided to charge NT members for parking). It then went through various stages as I flipped and mirrored it. I needed a focus so I took part of the picture and repeated that too. A swirl was added to increase the movement and the sides were taken from the same source. Free machining was used to give the raised effect.
I have subtitled it 'Magic Carpet' because it appears to resemble one and it has given me ideas for more work on the same theme.
