About the Image(s)

I combined the rock and the waterfall and then took that picture into curves to re-colorize it as the background. Next I rotated that picture 90 clockwise. Then I extracted the woman lying on the fence and repositioned her in the new background to make it look like she was sliding on the light.

Charles, Looking at the three originals, I would never have visualised putting them together in the way you have to create 'Woman Sliding'. The more I looked at your image, the more I had a feeling of the woman plunging headlong into the dark unknown. In order to enhance that storyline, I hope you don't mind but I have played around with the Transform Tool to stretch the picture, added a Duplicate Layer and Desaturated it, and then applied Motion Blur to enhance the sense of movement. Perhaps it needs to be rotated clockwise a touch to enhance the sense of falling into a hole. Isn't it interesting how we all see images in different ways?   Posted: 11/07/2020 05:38:45

Brian, I really like your rendition. It creates more movement. I'll play with it some more because I would love to see her being drawn towards the light and out of darkness. Maybe I just need to flip her image.Thanks

Here's a new rendition bouncing off of Brian's creativity.   Posted: 11/07/2020 13:22:46

This composite is wonderful. Although Brian has a great alternative, I do like your original version. Maybe you could ad a bit of motion blur to the lady so she looks more like she's slipping down a slippery slope. The blue and gold colors are complimentary and work very well together. I agree with Brian, that I would never have thought about putting those three images together. The brain works in mysterious ways. I'm sorry your alternative image didn't show up, but you could try again. There's still a few day until the end o the month .   Posted: 11/25/2020 16:02:32

It looks like an explosion! might have tried an offset layer of the woman at lower opacity to impart sudden movement.
