I recently posted HDR Concert #3.  If you look at the image you will see paratroopers littering the sky.  If you look long enough you will see they are all relatively the same, however, their size and angle are different.  Before you say it, I didn’t copy and paste them 50 times on several different layers.  I made a specific paratrooper brush and used Photoshop CS 5’s dynamic brush controls and let them do the hard work for me.  After setting it up, this paratrooper layer took mere seconds to create!
