Default Unique Idea...

I thought this was a pretty unique idea. Look closely at the area surrounding the main photos. The area that would normally be the mat, it looks like only part of the photo was masked out or two photos with different focal lengths were blended together. I studied them for a while and really couldn't quite tell how they were done, they were behind glass. well, I went around to the front of the both, I found out. These were done by two people, a man and wife team. The husband was the photographer and his wife would take the photos and mat and mount them. Then she put them on her easel and paint the mat to look like a foreground! Her work is fantastic, and her husband isn't a bad photographer either.












Its really hard to show in a photo like this but, these were really nice.

Wow! What a team. I have never seen anything like it, this is a fine example of thinking outside the box.

They really are awesome! You could do something similar with photos, but I'm not sure it would have quite the same impact. I agree, a wonderful, unique idea.

Wow , great idea, have to try this.
thanks for posting.

Edit an hour later

First try
Just two layers, the center is the original, the back is the same image but just played around with levels so the sky turned white.



Second try
Started with this picture


Just playing with levels doesn't help enough to get rid of the sky, but in lightroom (and photoshop raw) you can change the luminosity of a color, so I made the blue as light as possible for the background image, after that played a bit with the level sliders, masked out some of the plants and



larger version http://rhermans.smugmug.com/Location...2_qiHsE-X3.jpg

again thanks for posting, enjoyed trying to replicate one thing left, take some pictures especially with this processing technique in mind.

Ronny

Excellent work Ronny - they look very good ! I'm going to have to put that idea on my ever expanding list of Photographic To-Dos *deep sigh*

Really neat idea and if it's painted then the wife has wonderful skill for detail. Not sure if I would ever purchase or do a photo like that for myself, but it's still a very unique way of presenting a beautiful scene.
