Three angelic musician

By xwang
It seemed that my luck wasn't so bad in Sherborne Abbey, (none-shaken)Grin. I got some of the figures on the choir stall and carvings of misericords. I quite like them., they are at least medieval..
My knowledge of photoshop is quite limited. So far, this is the only way I can think out to isolate the background, and make the photos look more interesting. I'd like to have your ideas, is there anything else can be done to make them look more interesting ? Grin I used mask layer, extending canvas and moving tool, quite 'straight forward operation'...Smile All comments, criticisms&MODs are welcome. Thank you.
Update: I have uploaded the three original photos on V2-V4. Have a fun..SmileThanks.

Hi Jasmine, is there any chance you could upload the original image or images as it would be easier to help using those.... Nick

Wow, you combined them so well! A stunning image, Jasmine. Wonderful wood carving and you captured the texture.

Good work Jasmine. I prefer V1 and V2 of the set, with V3 and V4 being a little overexposed. I will load mods of these two with exposure reduced a little.

Just realised how youve done this Jasmine, and you addressed the overexposure well in the V3 and V4. Mods loaded either way, - you may find the method useful.

Very good work Jasmine - I think you have done a great job - corrected the over exposures in 3 and 4 - looks a great result to me IMHO

Thank you Willie.Smile
V2-V4 were the original ones that I put them on later under the request from Nick.
The most challenge part for me was to adjust the three photos into similar light and colour. Yes, Multiply layer reduces the light and increase the constrast very efficiently, very helpful indeed.
Thank you Allen, great work. WinkVery imaginative, I didn't think of this way... excellent!
Thank you all for your kind comments and support, your imaginative thoughts and ideas are very welcome.

A set of nice images. V1 is excellent - well done and extremely strong. Most people would be pleased to have done this. The other three are good, but v4 lacks definition and all three could be a little darker with a contrast boost - as is the case in v1.

I think this is wonderfully presented. However you do it - it's a very good result. Like the black bg too. Shows up the texture of the wood with subtle lighting , very well. And no shakes! Nice one Jasmine. Paul
