Good idea, but edges need cleaning up, especially on the left leg. Part of the background is still there between the jeans & shoe on the right side, and there's some sort of patch beneath the man's eye.

author says:

Now for once, CMYK46, you're very wrong - the legs are perfectly cut out, they are in fact seperate legs and clean as a whistle - am going to add them to my sbs now ( thought I'd done that) The patch under the man's eye is just part of him , (his lower lashes I believe) - does look odd though I must admit. I think you can see that if you look at the original pic in SBS's. Off to add the clean cut legs now........

author says:

Legs now No. 7 in sbs. Not had time to doctor them so that's how they were and are!

This is nitpicking, but on the jeans beneath the man's eye, compare to the source image...there's some sort of irregularity there that looks like it's patched in. And at right of the left shoe, directly below the cuff, there's still a triangular piece of background that the arm of the star is pointing at.

The figure is a bit too sharp in focus. A little Depth of Field blurring would help the visual believability.

The left leg is problematic to this piece. Looking at the DOF blur of the floor and the angle of the camera, that left foot should be slightly larger at the heel, and toe needs to be angled upwards a bit, not "flat" on the bottom edge of the image. Also, the pant leg on the left leg is doing a weird "pinched in" mirror effect at the ankle, and shows an odd gray fade mark running about 10 inches up the back of the leg and stopping.

The light source on the man's face is very strong, striking his chin and lower cheek from the top. This would make the shadows of the legs stronger on the left.
I cannot visually "read" the forearm with the watch on it. It looks like a brushed metal pipe, not a hairy forearm...

Personally, I'd suggest darkening those eyelashes. The light reflection on them is too distracting to your overall image.

MossyB - I'll need a day or two to digest all the info, but thanks for it all the same. CKYM46, I QUOTE "And at right of the left shoe, directly below the cuff, there's still a triangular piece of background that the arm of the star is pointing at." It is in fact the black strap of the man's watch! With regard to the jeans just below the man's eye - it's just where the jeans fold on to the shoe (foot) Baggy jeans man!!

Tomorrow, tomorrow............

LOL...the LEFT shoe!

author says:

THE END! (Baggy jeans and all!) Thanks for all the comments, they really have been appreciated - have simply done my best! I realise it may not be good enough......
