Serenity Prayer

 
Serenity Prayer - Part 1
In this lesson we learn some ways to change colors of the image, to do a premise greater when there is only its small part, and also to create illusion of movement and to give photos mystery.

Open the picture representing the monks: File ? Open (ctrl+o)

Make a copy of the picture's layer to be easier to work with it: Layer ? Duplicate Layer. Erase the previous layer and increase the work's field by using the Crop Tool.

Mark it out, using Rectangular Marquee Tool and copy it inserting on a new layer. Get back to the window containing the processed picture. Place this layer lower than the previous one, just clicking on it and moving on that place. Applying Edit ? Free Transform (ctrl+t), stretch out the background's layer vertically.

Copy
  
this layer then (Layer ? Duplicate Layer) and insert it on a new layer. Turn it around in a way to get a mirror reflection of the previous layer. Apply the command Edit ? Transform ? Flip Horizontal. Applying the Move Tool, merge down the edges of these two layers in a way that the junction wouldn't be seen and merge both layers: Layer ? Merge Down (ctrl+e)

Work with the background's color now, brightness and the contrast. For your convenience just hide the monks' layer visibility, clicking on ?eye? situated close to the layer. Pass to the background's layer again, applying Image ? Adjustments ? Curves (ctrl+m).
