About the Image(s)

This kept me quiet one rainy afternoon!!
Took a photo of my arm holding a Daisy. Lined a tin with dark red paper and took photo at same angle as my arm.Then took image of young seedling I am growing.
Used a tripod and my Canon R6. 24-70mm lens at 10mm. ISO100. 1/4sec at f14
Took all into PS. Placed the tin image on layer above arm layer and using a mask painted back in my arm leaving just the open end of tin visible. Selected the seedling and placed onto image and using a mask painted some soil over stem to make it look as if growing there. Then touched up areas that were not matching with the clone tool or healing brush

My first words. Oh my gosh!!!! Scary..........
Now that out of the way, how awesome is that! You are one creative lady. Wow. Composition is key, and you nailed it here. Colors great. Only thing I could offer is to get that flower you are holding to pop from the background, as it blends in especially on the left and gets a little muddled. Looks like two shades of black on the dirt. looks like planting the plant, and that works. rich soil indeed. Absolutely love it.

Nice, creative composition, agree with Randall's comments, I only could add that the soil should be still faling from the beginning it is visible, now it looks like a bit of soil is put at the exit, and not rolling out of the box/pipe ( Ihope you understand what I try to say)   Posted: 09/03/2021 02:11:44

What a wonderfully creative photo, Angela! I would agree with Randall…I think the flower should stand out a bit more from the background. Other than that, I think the whole idea is awesome!   Posted: 09/03/2021 19:09:32

Oh my God, this is a bit scary. I got scared seeing this:) thinking if this was a real hand. Interesting experiment I should say, and nice concept you came up with.   Posted: 09/25/2021 00:33:23
