Hitting the Nail on the... Nevermind

Many thanks to photographer mrdisaster - an appropriate name, considering the current condition of the tool from his photo. :)

Only one screen capture is included in SBS, to show the various layers. This illusion was achieved by selecting nearby areas of unshadowed wood and patching the pieces together, skewing, changing perspective, soft erasing edges to blend. The dowel was made by duplicating the hammer neck, shrinking it, then applying a little burn to create shadows. (5 years and 1964 days ago)

Everything's good except the shadow on the "dowel" part is on the wrong side. See light source.

author says:

Thank you! Added the little shadow. But what I was looking at is matching the original shadow from hammer head and the bottom of the handle extending straight left as well as back/up from the mid-lower right light source. So that was not supposed to be a shadow cast by the dowel side (although that's what it looked like), but the tip of the dowel casting a shadow backwards toward the handle. Any other suggestions to make it look better?

**Update** I think I figured it out - rather than angling the shadow from the tip, I squared it off and moved it lower / farther away from the tip.

Totally believable!

The contest description asserts that "Humor is a big factor here." The lack of an 'amusing' element/aspect could prove to be a weakness in the final rankings. But I admit I have no idea how to add funny to this.

author says:

Well, I guess the joke's on me, then. I can't always be good AND funny.

You don't have to be hit over the head with a hammer (pun intended) to see the humor in this. Together with the title you got a smile out of me. Nice work as well!

a tad bit more sky so the bird isn't cropped so close (this would be a framer's nightmare.. you need a bit bleed at the top.. great idea all round.. GOOD LUCK!!!

EDIT: (much better author, no edging prob )

The model has a white outline left from the original. Feathering this would fix it. Or modify> contract> delete.

Author, would you please tell me the theme? What were you thinking to create this? I'm kinda lost of your idea.
