Re: Dead End [Photo-Illustration]

I think that this looks really good. The things that I noticed are, the guy with the flash light and the girl look plastic. The light direction is not consistent. The light on the girl comes from the front left, They guy with the flashlight appears to be lit from straight on, and the other guy appears to be lit from the right. The road appears to have a spotlight on shining on it which is consistent with the light on the girl, and here shadow. They guys don't either one seem to have a shadow. Perhaps they are ghosts?

With all of that being said, putting a good montage together like this requires a lot of work and a lot of attention to detail. Getting the lighting correct is a key to making a montage work, and can be very diffacult to do. What you have done is stunning.

I was going to question the 2 yellow stripes in the road that head toward a fence in the background ?
