Hi all. I'd like to do a book cover in the style of one of Lee Child's, as a learning exercise. But I can't tell what has been done to them! All his book covers are on his site, here (make sure 'UK' is selected, not 'US'). Straight photos aren't usually used on mystery covers because that tends to make them look like nonfiction. So something has been done to these covers to take the photographic 'edge' off. And clearly they're composites - usually a background photo plus a figure photo plus a sky/cloud photo. But what else has happened to them? I'm guessing maybe a semi-transparent colour layer, maybe a semi-transparent layer with saturation beefed up, maybe a semi-transparent layer that has been blurred a little bit, but I'm guessing. I'd be grateful for any help!
