Tractor & Star Trails Stack

Playing around with lighting effects, layers, and contrast in Photoshop. Not gonna lie, something which can be so time consuming can be so fun!


How I did this:


Took a pic of a backlit International tractor during dusk (using Partial metering mode)


Then, took a shot this evening of some stars outside of town...with a shutter duration of about 7 min. to be exact.


Using layers, I copied and pasted the tractor shot onto the star trails image, and the rest of the effects are contrast, photo filter, lighting effects, color burn/dodge tool(s), diffuse glow, color saturation, Topaz Denoise V5, and a very light opacity Unsharp Mask layer.
