Nightfall at Lake Aurora

July 31st, 2014

Composite of one of my Iceland Aurora shots (available on my homepage as wallpaper) and an old photo of Bannalpsee (Lake Bannalp) in Switzerland.

Once I finished combining the Aurora sky with the once daylight scenery of Bannalpsee, I used Flaming Pear's great Photoshop plugin -Flood- to create the Aurora reflections. I little tweak merges both layers so that the original ripples are combined with the new "fake" ripples of the Aurora sky. Then I mostly corrected minor artifacts and color fringing and last but not least, used Nik Color Efex to play around with the colors.

Let me know in the comments whether you liked it or what you'd improve. Enjoy!

Adobe Photoshop CC, Nik Color Efex 4.0, Flaming Pear Flood.

Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED.

Photo Settings: 15mm, f/2, 30 seconds, ISO 800.

That's a fantastic shot of the aurora, no doubt about it. And while I'm usually harsh on composite shots, you always seem to craft the best of them. Great job as always.

If you never said anything about how this picture was created, I would have never even given it a second thought. Very awesome craftsmanship for this shot!

I asked 25+ people what they thought about this pic and not one person believed this was a "crafted" image.

Awesome job sir!

I personally love the composite images, quite fantastical works! Haven't changed my background in a long time, no surprise that a DK work would change that ;)
