Building a Castle Part 3

My next step in this image was finding some sky I liked better than the original photo had. These clouds seemed to have the light coming from about the same direction and time of day. As with the castle, I used adjustment layers to correct the color. Curves was especially useful, as it gives more control over the individual reds, blues, and greens.

Portfolio Project Label

I am going through all the exercises and portfolio projects that my college classes did not have time to cover. This is my own original image based on a project in chapter two of Adobe Illustrator CS6. They provided only the text to be used, and suggestions for research to create the best label for the "client". Except for some minimal Photoshop work, everything was done in Illustrator, including image tracing the P.S. images. Also used Type on a Path and Gradients.
