About the Image(s)

Another one of my pumpkin images. This is my grand daughter Sarah when she was a tiny girl. She is 26 years old now. Photoshop was used to design the pumpkin kayak. Water is from my library. Image was put together using layer mask in Photoshop.

Nick, this image is wonderfully whimsical. Your granddaughter is charming and you caught her at a perfect moment.

I'm impressed with your design of the pumpkin. The outside really looks like a pumpkin and it is a fitting size for the child. Placing her in the "kayak" and putting it in the water was a very creative idea. Nicely done!

I like the water splashing against the right side of the pumpkin. However, the water in the middle and left side don't look quite as natural. That might simply be how the wave existed, but thought I'd mention it anyway.

Wonderful imagination and wonderfully executed!

This is another well-constructed and attractive image, Nick. I do have a couple of concerns though as there is haloing around the edges of your granddaughter and her back doesn't meet the pumpkin on the left-hand side. I feel too that the image could do with some shadows to make it more three dimensional. Having said all that, I do agree with Pete that it displays your wonderful imagination yet again.   Posted: 05/15/2019 01:32:17

Apologies Nick, I 'mislaid' you Just lookig to see all had commented --deadline coming up--when I saw my omission.

It is charming Nick and another of your clever ideas I do agree with Pete that the water on the middle LH side needs to be ruffled up a bit to make it more natural--nevertheless it is a sweet image.
