I posted this photo about a hour ago but for some reason it has vanished from the forum, so I'll try again. It is a shot of model Liz composited with water using the Flaming Pear Photoshop Flood program. I had posted other examples earlier of use of this plug-in. The key to these looking anywhere close to realistic is using multiple layers and a mask and the double application of the plug-in. Here is the shot:



Comments or questions are welcome.

Cheers,

No, I can see something there also, but I don't know where it came from. I didn't do anything to that part of the sky, so I don't know where the effect came from. I have a lot of fun with the filter.

Great effect! I have Flood but have never been able to figure out how to get the water to extend beyond the subject. Any tutorial would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark

That is awsome!! Would you mind giving some detail to how you got the reflexion? I only have Elements 2 & 3 so I may not be able to do it.

Actually the reflections are quite simple....
Just make a copy layer....flip vertical..and adjust the opacity and a slight gaussian blur....notice the car and the girl are on a even horziontal plain so this reflection was simple....when they arent on a horizontal plain it gets a bit more complex.....so start out easy. make sure your copy layer is below the original layer. I did the car and the girl in two seperate layers so i could adjust positions as needed...only had to rotate the car a bit... oh and to get them to fade as they come closer to you I applied a mask and did a black to white gradient on the mask.

I was doing good, keeping up with your directions (until I actually have time to sit down and try which I don't right now.) Until you hit the "mask". I've heard the term, but don't know what it means.

Thanks Don!!

When you install the flood plugin, there is a folder called flood-abc where abc is the version number. In that folder is a file called flood guide.html. Open that and it has a tutorial for "submerging people". That gives the method for doing what you want.

Cinna... Im not sure about Elements..it may have Quick Mask Mode...A mask is basically what it says....its a layer that masks thing you want to see or dont want to see...without doing any damage to any layers. basically you use the paintbrush on a mask in white or black colors to remove or add parts to the mask. using grays makes your masking areas transparent or opaque depending on the shade of gray. so you can using black and white gradients to feather your mask...Masks had me confused at first too...but when you think about it as what it is..its pretty basic actually....takes a bit to learn it..but when you do its like a big "DUH" that hits you in the forehead. Masking gives you so much flexibility! Because you never Destroy anything....if You make a horrible mistake..just dump the mask...no harm done.
Don!
