Bleak Outpost

By Brookhousek
A composite of four images. The background and the foreground were the same location in the Peak District but joined to give the soldier something to stand on. The soldier and his food table were from the same event. I have used several adjustment layers to alter the colours and spent quite a bit of time manually drawing hair and fur for the blanket.

This is really excellent and expertly blended GrinGrinGrin. The only very very small niggle is that the basket looks a bit like it's floating, but I'm probably the only one who will notice it Wink. Love this image! Grin

@alda thanks for those great comments. I've gone back to the original and cloned out the snow from under the basket, added a bit of shadow and grass and it sits on the ground more firmly. Cheers Smile
