This was merged from two images.  I happened to find two logs next to each other, and got Julianna to sit on each one.  In the left, reluctantly offering flowers, and on the right elated to be receiving flowers.  I used Lightroom for overall adjustments, and Photoshop Elements to merge them together.

 

Both are:

f/8   1/250sec  ISO 100

Flash was on because the sun was extremely bright.

Nice work, Brian.  I can detect no sign of the composite.
Perhaps the Juliianna on the right could have been a tad larger and the color a bit more consistent,
but, I’m being too picky.

Also, a great combination of processing programs.  Thank goodness Adobe is not folding these two
into its future Creative Cloud subscription plan.  Many unhappy photographers out there.

The merge was pretty easy actually.  I opened up both pictures in Photoshop elements.  Then I used the rectangular marquee tool to highlight the amount of the ‘right’ picture I wanted.  Copied and pasted it into the ‘left’ picture.

I had a problem with the shadows of the tree though because of the breeze, so I used the erase tool and erased part of the left photo where the tree shadows on the ground were.

I think you could also do a similar thing in photoshop… take the two pictures… then use the edit, auto-align layers… you can then add a layer mask to the top picture… then “bush in” the second subject using the brush tool using black as the foreground color.  This is a great thing to do when you are taking a family shot and everyone looks great except one person.  You can do this and use one person’s face from a different shot.

Not as far as I know.  But I used Photoshop Elements launched from within Lightroom.  Lightroom is really more of a way to ‘develop negatives’ from RAW images, but Photoshop is the pixel editor.

 

If there is a way to do it, I wasn’t able to figure it out.

Thanks for explaining that for the Photoshop crowd.
