About the Image(s)

The two Volcano images are of Mount Etna. I took the image of the male at a LARP event. I have no idea what I am going to do when I start these images. I extracted him from the background and after popping many backgrounds in, I felt the volcanoes looked the best. I put a small amount of shadow behind him, after I finished the image, I noticed he could have done with a tummy tuck, so went back and got rid of that LOL. I added the flame coming out of the gun and lightning with Particle Shop. I added a small amount of rain. Then Colour Lookup Night from Day to make the image darker and lowered the opacity to 25%. I added light rays from a Florabella Overlay and masked out bits of it. I also added a Florabella texture over the top, then a levels adjustment and vignetting. My DIL suggested I needed another element so I added the truck, then I had to try and make it look like I had placed it there in the beginning. He now has a reason for being there. I snapped the truck in Italy. Should the truck be larger? I was going for the scorched earth destruction look in the end. Maybe it should be brighter? Critique is very welcome.

An entertaining image with a story (thanks to the truck!) Maybe I could ask you to organise a 'tummy tuck' for me!
Particle shop has some interesting effects, but I find many of them work at their best with smaller images - I think I'd have used Eye Candy for the flames.
I think your positioning and sizing of the truck are fine and the scorched earth look is right for the location and the image.
Well done.
