Hello Again,

Prehaps I'm scraping the barrel with this one..I cant work out if I like it or not.
Obviously its been heavily photoshoped.

Any help would be great.

Well, seeing as the main subject appears to be blurry, I'd say there's no salvaging it.

is it PS onto a different background? there seems to be an edge effect (not sure of the proper term). However, you could try doing some artography with it like Jimmy does.

Your edges are too hard, looks very cut-out. It is soft.

If you can go back and reshoot I would...I don't think there is much here worth saving IMO.
I think your instincts are right. :)

Well, it's obviously photoshopped. The lighting on the stump and the background is completely off. What you've tried to do is increadibly difficult, so don't feel bad. Only the real photoshop masters can pull that off.

The subject itself is interesting, but out of focus. That's killing the shot as well, so if you've got a change to go back, please do.

I like the idea behind it though. And that's a good thing. It might not have worked out this time, but you're on the right track. Keep practicing and you'll eventually got yourself a masterpiece... :)

Agree with the the group. GORGEOUS potential here, but the main subject is blurry. For me, that means invest the time elsewhere.
