More on Masking

Since I started the Photoshop lessons, I have been having issues with understanding the idea of a mask. Now I think it is finally becoming clearer (no pun intended). Here’s the original I started with.

And here’s the new version, cropped, and half the background masked, with a filter, and the other half left, with a filter. I kind of like the effect. And I did enjoy using a couple of keyboard shortcuts to the painting. I was curious to see how the half background would work – it’s interesting to have the flowers “hanging” in space like that, although I do like the colored pencil effect on the flowers.
