I loved the look of these wooden boats in Turkey but in my photos they were surrounded by modern boats and buildings. I’ve been playing around in Corel Paintshop Pro to see if I can create images that look like they have come from a bygone era.
I worked in layers and pasted the wooden boat on top of the photo of the mosque. I then erased all the bits I didn’t want. I used the clone tool and the smudge brush to get rid of the boat behind the wooden boat. I then merged the layers.
To create the aged look in both photos I reduced the saturation and changed the colour balance by adding more yellow. I then added noise at about 50%. In the top photo I blurred the background by selecting it and adding a Gaussian blur.
