For the HDR image I did on my own I basically followed the steps from the tutorial but I changed some of the values for instance I went a little brighter on the highlights then the shadows and I also didn’t go with as high for a value on the gaussian blur. I think it brought out more detail in the tree itself.
For the content aware part I took an image of beach volleyball players. I took out the player just to the right of the guy about to spike the ball as well as the three people closer tot the water. I also eliminated the person in the far background walking with the other women.
For the make it sunny I again followed the steps similar to the tutorial. I immediately brightened the image by using the curves tool. I then quick selected the water and put a photo filter over it. After that I quick selected the sky which was completely cloudy and used the same gradient from the tutorial. I then put in some white fluffy clouds and copied them and flipped vertically to reflect in the water. Overall I think it turned out pretty good this was the most difficult of the three but I’m happy with the results.
