Jake Mosser Tree
October 2014

Background is a giant redwood tree from the park in northern Calif.
Used overlay layer mode to put Jake Mosser’s  face in the tree. (Jake is a long time member of PSA and has modeled at the conference)
Ran Mild Details in Topaz.  Made frame in Photoshop.

    Jake fits well in the tree Nick. I cannot see that I would add or change a thing, the positioning of the tree with the fence and the BG make for a lovely scene and the frame is perfect. Well done.

    I really like the idea here Nick. It is well done as usual. The only comment I might make is make it a vertical image. I think this would make the face stand out more.

    I like the image format as the fence does provide a bit of a lead-in to the tree. The background looks a bit over sharpened, I would try making is a little softer.

    Interesting idea. I like the way the fence provides a leading line and that the tree is a bit off centered. Well done.

    A very interesting idea you had for this portrait . The fence is a good lead in line to the face and you have made the opacity just right to make it look god to me.

    An interesting image, Nick. The man’s face works really well as a part of the tree, although, if it were mine I would have reduced its saturation slightly to make it blend in a little more.
