In January’s One Four Challenge I played around with adding skies (and their reflections) to a shot of some Vietnamese boats.
In one attempt I overlaid this cracked marble stone with a carved dragon bas-relief on top of the photo of the boats just to see what happened.
Although it didn’t work, it did give me the idea of adding an Asian-style sky to a photo. But not to this shot — adding the corresponding reflection in the water would be just too much work! (The original January ‘One Photo Four Ways Challenge’ Post.)
What I ultimately decided to overlay was this painted dragon ceiling from a Hue tomb. (The Royal Tomb of Khai Dinh in my Travel Blog.)
For the most part the dragon sky was way too busy so I ended up ‘descending’ the dragons to beneath the blue-green waters. I like the way it worked with unsuspecting tourists in a coracle floating above the monsters below.
