Combining and Editing Your Photos

Several autumns ago, I drove down to Carthage, Missouri for some fall painting.  I discovered a little recreated farm village.  I even met the man who conceived it and transported the buildings from far and near.  I also sold a painting of one of the buildings to its owner! 

This morning I found two photos of my trip.  I combined the farm and windmill from one, adding the little cupola to break up the straight line of the roof, and then added the chicken from another shot.

Don't be a slave to your photos.  Play with composition, values, colors, adding and subtracting where necessary.
