This is my idea for the contest. A turtle island inhabited only by one man.
I modified the lighting and the shadows of the source image and the turtle to match the sunset.
Hope you like it! :D
EDIT: I improved the light rim of the tree and replaced the man with one from a photo. Hope it's better now erathion! :D
used only source and personal stock to make this.
My SBS isn't all that informative, so heres a shortened version of the play by play...
*removed jumping couple.
*removed people from the ocean
*removed people from the sidelines on the left
*changed hue and increased saturation
*selected boy from personal stock and placed on bench
*burned shadows onto the bench
*added boys shadows to the grass
*did some blurring around the edges of the boy to make him more a part of the picture.
Comments and critiques always welcome :) Thank YOU!
