Hi JackK,

I thought I'd get your singer onto the big stage, so I cut him out used the Render Lighting filter from Left and Right. I created some "Spotlights" in the background by creating a Selection, Feathered about 15 pixels and filling it with a Linear Gradient. I would then contract the Selection and fill that with a white gradient. I added some spotlights pointing straight at the lens using the Lens flare filter and finally I added a bit of Render Lighting on the Background just to seperate the figure.

Hope you like it.

Regards

Con Looymans

Hi Craig...thank YOU.

To me it's still hard to beat the Impressionist style.

Con, that's really a nice job of swapping backgrounds etc.

Great idea!
