About the Image(s)

The base image for the composite was taken at a field trip done...the expression of solitude of the model gave rise to the idea to create an image which exacerbates the loneliness and the mental strain of waiting...

The framed effect was created with an image captured some time ago of a roof structure shot against the light using a point and shoot camera . After correcting the perspective, level adjustments, the healing brush tool was used to get a reasonable level of details of the "frame", the aspect ratio was adjusted to suit the final image. Editing done with PS and Nik.

I like what you did with the combination of these two images.
It gives a very three dimensional look. The only thing I would change would have been to have the models feet located on the last white line. However, since her feet are not shown in the original that's kind of hard, so the placement is good. Nice job.   Posted: 01/10/2022 20:18:21

Thanks Fred...I agree with you regarding the models feet. I had the same comment when I posted on another group too. Thanks again for your critique. Much appreciated.   Posted: 01/10/2022 20:23:52

This took some work and thought to come up with the composite. Nice job on the structure and like the other's I wish the feet were visible. I think I would make the background behind her all black.   Posted: 01/14/2022 10:39:01

Thanks Irene, unfortunately, the models feet weren't captured in the original. I think I will try to "insert" the feet from another picture...with regard to the background, I will try to darken it, but, wonder if that will remove the slight separation of the subject from the background? Thanks again for your kind feedback.   Posted: 01/14/2022 21:28:08
