Verrry clever. Impressive how you've married up the plume of water from the jet ski to the background. Lil' details like that can enhance something a lot :)

The picture is from a single image (the background and the jetski). The picture itself is based upon this tutorial for PS: http://www.pinoy7.com/psptutorials/7/thephotowithin/p1.shtml

I added the hand holding the picture and broke the central picture down into 2 separate pieces so 1 could be make black and white and the other remain colorized.

This is the original image: http://gallery.photo.net/photo/4631378-lg.jpg

Here is the image I used to create the hand holding a photo: http://www.psdgraphics.com/file/holding-a-blank-flyer.jpg

That's one expensive pool table ... Can imagine the ground crew giving those fly-boys some solid (deleted word) on that one. "Sure, you can land in 50 foot swells, but can you dodge an 8 ball?" :mrgreen:

Heh heh heh. That's funny, delpart!

Awesome image, Jim. I love your imagination!

Great image! Man, that is so funny! Good on you.

While I was searching for Aircraft Carrier images I saw one that had a golf course on it, but I didn't want to duplicate it. When I began my search I knew I wanted to do something kind of odd, but I didn't know what. It took me awhile to come up with something different.

You are so funny!

Thank you both for the comments.

EDIT:

One more piece to end this evening:

Oh nice too. A bit of shadow on his feet maybe? Dunno but it is very good.

Yes, a little shadowing would really set it off. I'm digging the composition, though. Nicely done, Jim!

Maybe he's a ghost :)

From the time you could walk British city streets without getting mugged/accosted by hoodies :roll:

Seriously though ... very nicely put together

That's really good. All blended so beautifully, too. It seems that the man is a little big, but maybe it's just me? Oh, and I really enjoyed the pool table on the deck of the ship. You're really good at this!

Here's the adjusted image:

For some reason I wasn't able to re-do quite to the same degree as the first. The lighting is off a tad from the original (I didn't write down what settings I used) and there's a little detail lost that I wasn't able to duplicate either (I can see the difference when looking at the lights and comparing it to the first submission).

As far as the hieght of the man is concerned, I think you are right. I didn't notice this at first, but now that you've pointed it out, when I compare him to the coach I think he is a little taller than what he should be. At this point though, I'll just make note of it and hopefully be a bit more attentive on future pieces. Thanx

Nice work, Jim! The shadow under the man really gives him a sense of depth and weight. As far as his height, maybe he's just a really tall guy! Overall, I think you did a fantastic job!

Wee bit tall but only because I'm seeing the doorways. Even though I dont live near buildings like that, I have that reference point ... But I dont know how tall those doors are, just what the average ones are here in the US. Giants exist though ... He could simply be this 7 foot tall guy in his old age: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0537631/bio Seen near other people he makes caricature of lots of normal objects.

Shadows helped set him into the scene now though. Shame on the lighting. That's annoying when you lose that little bit magic like that.

Height is not an issue for me at all because the cobble stones are too large for the doors in that case.

Jim, the addition of the shadows just lifts this enormously. A very fine image. Makes me think of Dr Who for some reason. Well done!!

 The only other thing I would suggest would be Anti-Aliasing and possibly some mild feathering on the buildings where you cut out the sky.  AA and Feather are your best friends.  Other than that, this is a brilliant composition, Jim!

Not possible. I didn't cut out the sky. I only recolored it. But, I suppose I could cut it out, but then I'd have to go through all that stuff you just pointed out boltbait.smile.png
