Title: “Walking On Water”
The shot was taken overlooking the lake from the cliffs behind the church where I was married, and where my wife and I baptized our two children. I do not believe the particular story of Jesus walking on water was an accurate account, but a dream of Peter. But the church premises and the ice which I still find hard to walk on in this Scandinavian landscape brought up thoughts of the miraculous. Sometimes life throws you surprises, one of which inspiring this image.
The shot was adjusted using levels in Photo Editor. I then exported it to PS Touch. The stripes are just duplicated sections of the image made into their own layers, using the multiply filter at about 30% and in combination with fading opacity.
I made a black background layer with white text in Photo Editor. The typeface is called “Iceland”, which I thought fitting. I added this as a layer in PS Touch using the “lighten” layer feature, at 20% opacity to give a hint of the text, nothing more. Save and done.
