About the Image(s)

The curving line of pumpkins was shot last Saturday at 2:18 on iPhone, 28mm, f/1.8, ISO20, 40mm, 1/1845 sec & the young man a minute later, (with his mom’s permission, as I liked his pumpkin-colored shirt & cap). His shot only differed thus: ISO 16, 80mm, f/2.4, 1/827 sec.
In Superimpose X, I layered both shots, cropped, flipped the boy to match the direction of shadows on pumpkins, vignetted slightly, and made scant enhancements to color and sharpness. Zooming in, I realized the word VOLS on his cap now read SJOY, so I used Retouch app to clone it out, then ResizeIt to finish.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

As a fan of repeating lines and shapes, I love your image Pat. The pondering boy is a nice bonus. Looking at the original, I wouldn't have minded if you had gone wider with your edit, all the way to the fence.   Posted: 11/05/2021 21:26:52

Which one, which one...he seems to be thinking. The final is a very nice image that no one would ever guess is superimposed. About the hat letters, I have encountered the same thing occasionally, but caught it in time. Perfect when flipped until I noticed the reversed letters-- so more work was needed. You cleverly placed the boy in the field and the results are great. Lovely lines and brilliant colors!   Posted: 11/08/2021 11:47:35

Nice job combining images to create a story. I find the pumpkin photo interesting with a strong leading line, rich color, etc. but adding the boy begs me to stop and think of the story. Very creative.   Posted: 11/08/2021 20:30:58

Great job of combining two images. Composition and color add to the story. I'm going to try using Superimpose X.   Posted: 11/11/2021 09:40:46

You have done a nice job to combine the two images. The final image looks natural with the curvy lines of pumpkin that guide the viewers' eyes going from the foreground to the background. The boy with the orange T shirt and hat are a big plus.
I'd prefer to lighten the boy's face a bit more since his eyes are covered by the shadow of his hat. He seems to have a face painting too.
Although you have cloned the letter on the boy's hat, I found that the Nike logo (the Nike Swoosh) on the boy's T shirt and short are in reverse.
