Nicely done images, and a very interesting concept Smile i like V2 no critique to offer other than to suggest that it may be made better by cropping / cloning out the structures at the bottom of the shot

Cheers and hope this helps Smile

Super idea and very well executed — flavours of Mount Rushmore. Smile

I agree with devlin that the tops of the buildings ought to be cropped. Also, your white cliffs look rather blue to me — probably the tint of the car windows confusing the camera white balance.

Hi devlin, many thanks for you comments, very much appreciated. I'm getting happier with this little project as it develops, I was initially thinking of leaving the structures as to me they provide some scale and perhaps some of the reality mixed with the fantasy of the image? What would you think of including more from the original cliff pic? taking the crop outwards? I had also thought (as silly as it may sound) of getting round the scruffy top edge by adding a hat of some sort! A typically North East England flat cap or such? Although not quite sure how i'd deal with that top left cliff edge and its interaction! A work in progress, and I must confess my first of this type! Crops for use in indesign / corel etc, day in day out, but using PS to its full potential! I have to admit i'm on a steep, but satisfying learning curve!

Hi DRicherby, many thanks, I was thinking so much of getting the hue for the face to match the hue of the cliff I'd totally missed the point that the cliff wasn't the right colour to start off with!.
Thank you all again guys and Gals,
V3 (and poss 4) to follow shortly.
Kindest wishes, Paul.

More of the buildings could work, too: they need to be either integrated into the composition or removed. I think it would be hard to add a hat convincingly and not really needed. Could be an interesting project, though!

Ahhh yes V3 looks good Smile i think David has a point on the structures in terms of they being integrated into the composition...you could well try it and see what the outcome is..nothing ventured nothing gained Smile
