About the Image(s)

Specs: Nikon D5000, Tamron 60mm Macro, F11, 1/3s, ISO 200, Tripod, Room Light

This is very much an experiment in creating something unexpected. The leaf is from a sunflower and the horse is from a western scene. I removed the background of the leaf and the horse, flipped the horse horizontally, added a new shadow to match the surrounds.

I realize this is rather whack, but it's saying something to my crazy brain, as though the horse is attitudinal about me staring at him in this situation. I think I need to have my meds checked again. Suggestions?

That sure is a good looking horse! Is it a quarter horse? Im thinking the shadow is not where the light would put it, and perhaps it might be fun make him become more integrated into the leaf by changing the opacity. .   Posted: 01/04/2020 10:41:49

Yes. I go sidetracked at hubby's rehab! Will give it a go and send it along.   Posted: 01/04/2020 16:25:47

I love the fantasy of a horse on a large leaf. I'm inclined to think he needs a little more head room. Fun stuff. I'd keep your meds where they are. :)

Hmmm . . . Perhaps shrinking the horse a bit will give him some more headroom. Hmmm . . .   Posted: 01/04/2020 14:13:48

Wow, I didn't know they were available on the Emerald Isle! d;¬{Ð

I think I got the gist of what you're showing me. Is this what you intended?   Posted: 01/05/2020 14:52:05

My cutting out is not as good as yours. What I was trying to do was move the horse down the leaf a bit & use a bit of puppet warp in PS so that the horse is not static. The rest was just a bit of out of body experience for fun   Posted: 01/06/2020 03:36:51

I like the fact that you flipped the horse. It helped make the photo.
Yes - it is quarter horse. I have one that looks just like it.   Posted: 01/05/2020 11:48:37

Miriam. Those meds must work well for the fantasy gene. Good version for the land down the rabbit hole.   Posted: 01/05/2020 12:12:04

How fun!! I like the version where the horse is down further. Now, can you indent the leaf a bit where his hooves touch it? I couldn't but you fantasy people probably can.   Posted: 01/13/2020 14:43:34
