DekuTree-Outside(medium)

One last shot of my LEGO Deku Tree model from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which was built in January 2019. This is a stylistic photo of it using a combination of practical camera tricks and composite images:

The first image was the tree itself shot with a wide angle lens and a low aperture, to keep the foliage and sky out of focus. Next I added a shot I took of the sun in the sky above Whitestone, NY to create the lens flare effect on the left side. Finally I used another shot of the sky from the same outdoor photo shoot, and then masked it around the tree with blending options in Photoshop, which makes the sky and clouds look more realistic.
