A forgotten piece of Greek mythology...

Thanks to Wikipedia for the stature image. Thanks to this tutorial for some techniques for making photos more dramatic: http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/photo-effects-tutorials/how-to-turn-humdrum-photos-into-cinematic-portraits/

SBS will be added soon. (5 years and 1763 days ago)

wouldn't the light be on the other side of the ball??

author says:

The light is on the top-left of the ball...the light is coming from the top-left. Think I should emphasise the light more?

bddesign says:

no, quite the opposite, you should emphasise the shadows more... shadows and lighting are key, but shadows need work on the bottom right of the ball.. just make it darker so its not all the same lightness

This is very very nice work,but Atlas image is not usable...

author says:

From Wikipedia: "I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law." I've seen pictures used here with the same Wikipedia liscense. What would make it not usable? Is there some hidden copyright that I don't know about? O.o I'll fix the shadows more, thanks, bdesign, as soon as I make sure my picture is okay...

awesome work ! the atlas image is NOT copyrighted and it can be used

author says:

Thanks, Lamantine. I looked around on the site more and found a few places where entries used Wikipedia pictures with the same copyright. So, yes, should be alright. I'll go ahead with the SBS and extra shading.
