fun indeed.

the children look like pro models.Are they yours?

Wow ! This is really superb, so well put together as real ! Click.
By Pete At 08:18AM - 20 Oct 2004
Well done your PS skills are certainly developing. I think the boy needs to be bigger though. He looks out of scale with the girl. Otherwise, as has been said, it looks almost real.

20 Oct 2004 9:35AM
Absolutely superb. Great idea, beautifully shot and very well put together. I love the shadowing under the girl and the way the leaf appears to be in between the boys hand and leg. Very clever.

You're getting far too good at this Smile Well done. Keem them coming. Clicked, obviously.

Hmph! Stunningly beautiful and talented too! Now I'm depressed... Wink

20 Oct 2004 10:33AM
Excellent, excellent work K!
Very creative, and wonderful PS work Smile
(Only tiny, tiny niggle is that something is not quite right with the shadowing/lighting of the boy. There appears to be a halo round his right leg too. But then that's being really nit-picky!)
Well done!

K, I've decided you are the queen of PS! This is brilliant. I'm still struggling with the whole layers concept, let alone actual manipulation. Your portfolio just gets better and better. Will be good to see some of your work in the ePz book. (And hopefully lots tips from you too!!)


Ps: The office I've just moved into is getting broadband installed this weekend, keep your fingers crossed for me!! I installed it myself at my other job, but that was only one computer.
29 Oct 2004 9:09AM
Heidi thank you, only two layers involved in this so if I can do it anyone can. Be nice to be involved in the book but so many talented photographers on here might be difficult. Fingers crossed for you too. K.

Prompted by your kind comments on one of my images, I thought Id have a quick look again at your excellent portfolio.

Love this image. Inserting subjects into other pictures is 'relatively' easy but making them look believable is the real skill - and thats certainly been the case here.

sometimes comments made about your own photos make you discover those made py the commentators who might (as now) try to have the same approach as yours.
