About the Image(s)

Here is an image I made with my Pixel 3 Camera phone, of a Santa Christmas ornament.
f /1.8, 1/60 sec, ISO 342.
Created a Santa Portrait
Edited in Photoshop 2021, I extracted the Santa from the background, created a new background, from the original image, then placed Santa back on the background. Used the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop, to add more contrast, texture, and clarity. Added the border in Photoshop.

I like what you have done. It would make a very nice Christmas card. You did a great job of applying the texture background layer. My only suggestion would be to make the background green to make the Santa stand out rather than blend in.   Posted: 01/12/2021 09:57:25

Fun image. I like the background you chose. It looks natural and is less busy than in the original image. I agree with Cindy it would make a great card.   Posted: 01/12/2021 11:10:12

Nice image for a cell phone; the detail in the face and beard are great. I like your post processing. The new background is a big improvement over the original. For sure Card worthy.   Posted: 01/13/2021 13:21:16
