About the Image(s)

R2D2 is a small toy that I own. As some of you may remember, it appeared in the Star Wars movies. The toy is only about 4 inches tall. Photographed on dining room table with the W3.
I made another photo with the R2D2 in my hand to show its size. The background is my house and driveway. The red car belongs to a neighbor.
Attached are two photos: 3D photo assembled in Photoshop.
Attached is also the original picture of the R2D2 in my hand.

Pretty good job in putting the 3 images together in 3D with photoshop, but my first impression was there is a bit of perceived size issues here. As I recall in the movie, relative to a car, R2D2 only about 1/2 that tall. And the car as it appears on your driveway is more than 1/2 the width of the driveway which would make it seem to be over 12' wide. Natural looking shadows are hard to do in 3D with photoshop. One can see the shadow on the left side of the house, but there are no shadows of the car or R2D2. It looks like you did add a shadow all around the R2D2 that is in your hand.   Posted: 10/13/2019 18:49:52

I agree with David as the car and R2D2 both appear to be floating due to the lack of a shadow. I do like the overall idea but more work is required to make it all appear realistic.   Posted: 10/14/2019 13:37:33
