Another Umbrella Theme Picture

This is another umbrella-themed post. I think I prefer The Welcome Umbrella photo.

I admit to embellishing this photo in Photoshop, specifically the upper right area. I did this by selecting the umbrella and area above it, clicking on Layer, then New, then Layer/ New/ Layer via Copy. Oh,
 and I locked it in place, then added filters and even part of another image until I got an effect that felt right. I also experimented with various modes of merging the layer onto the background.


  1. Great photo!! Did you take it yourself or have someone else take it?

  2. My husband took it. Glad you like it!

  3. Pretty cool! It's fun to play around with photos in Photoshop and see what you can come up with.
