These Fairies provide proof of how rainbows are
really made ...
I like to consider this image as demonstrating a "Bryce enhanced
background". How many times have you taken a photograph and wished for an extra rock
here, another branch there, or any other number of elements you needed to finish the
composition to your satisfaction? You can use Bryce to create individual landscape
elements, and "merge" them into an existing photograph with an image editing
program (such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop).
I took the photograph used in this image in 1989 with an Olympus OM-1 and
an Olympus 50mm lens on 125 speed Kodak Ektar film. Additional elements for the final
composition where created in Poser 3 and Bryce 4. I then "merged" the photograph
with the new elements in Paint Shop Pro 5. I did not use layers, I went pixel by pixel as
I combined elements and used a careful selection of various blurs. Can you pick out the
artificial image elements?.
