Chimney Pots Theme
It cedrtainly attracted my attention, whan I first saw the thumbnail, its not one easily worked out what you did.
Great addition to the theme today and such a unique way to present. Having known a few haunts done in Cornwall, I was expecting a gem to come from that part of the county. Its very good the way the have incorporated the them and added a scene.
I'm sure you will be getting a much better answer to your question but i'll have a crude go at it.
If you wanted to delete a sky and add another you first need to be in layers, then select the whole sky using the Magic Wand at a setting of poss 20 to 30. Once hi lighted then right click and use feather. This has the effect of making the delte line more blurred thus giving a better chance of not seeing the delete line. Then delete and add a sky and place it behind the layer that you have just deleted the sky.
I'm sure someone may help in a better way than that.
Clkear as mud, I know tehehehe

very nice contribution to the theme. I really like the POV! I love that the ship's figurehead is attached to the house. How cool is that?! You managed to make a very unique presentation out of this. I think your post processing results are great. It is a very dramatic composition - my immediate thought was that there is strong weather coming up and the Lady is watching out for her crew -in the house, haha... :) Lovely, well done!
Hi Joy,an unusual addition to a home,for most of TLs viewing,but I guess not in Cornwall, where there are many fishing villages & homes of seamen,so the ships figurehead would not be that unusual,I'm surprised at the glass flower though.I like the painted mural as well.A good contribution for this weeks theme & the chimney-pots certainly stand out.Good clear details,well taken. I know you use Adobe & thought this article may be of interest,re adding a sky to an image. http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-replace-a-sky-in-photoshop

Simply a fantastic observation, Joy!
A very well suited entry to Friday's theme.
The light and exposure are well done, and colors are natural.
Good architecture and nice artwork make this work so special in its appeal.
A well executed shot!
Have a nice weekend.

Wish i could help with the layering of images here Joy ,i am hopeless with Photoshop but this looks good enough as is , aside from the bit of overexposed sky it is quite an acceptable photo , the chimney/subject is there indeed and you have an eyecatching statue with a glass vase in its hand backed by a lovely mural so what more is necessary to captivate my viewing of this scene , not much else .
A valid contribution to the theme , tfs and have a good weekend ,

This is a nice piece of art you're composed here. The ship's figurehead is charming and attching chimneys is a genuine idea. Nice presentation, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Joy, it is the painting on the wall that I particularly like here.And I can quite understand why you were attracted to this cottage,I would have been too!
I will have to look out for this cottage when we visit Portloe.
An original entry for the theme.
Sorry cannot help with the PP work.
Tfs, regards Jean.
