BACKGROUND #1 DEVELOPMENT – COMPLETION OF VICTORIAN ERA IMAGE

BACKGROUND #1 DEVELOPMENT - COMPLETION OF VICTORIAN ERA IMAGE

Having created the ‘Victorianised’ image, I created the final composition by placing this side by side with the modern day image – with a necessary 990px wide central gap to house the actual website body.

Initially, the scale of each image was far too small when trying to fit both around the space left for the website body. To get around this issue I had to use the clone stamp and healing brush tools to extend the trees upwards and some of the canal downward. This also added some nice framing perspective to the composition which gives the overall image some good impact.

There isn’t much visual impact to the standalone image viewed out of context. However, when screenshots of the National Geographic site are placed on top the background image looks much more impressive (see next post)
