Weird Perspective

Took this picture of my daughter at the beach yesterday, and apart from the date being wrong (should have read 30/12/2006), it has a weird perspective which I am having a devil of a time resolving satisfactorily. Anyone care to have a go? Any comments?

Re: Weird Perspective

The first thing I would do, would be to remove the tree growing out of her head :-)
Then I would try a different sky.
Finally I would try a a different crop.

I'll take a crack at it and then post it.

[EDIT]

Here is my take on it... Tried to work on the left elbow but failed miserably...

Re: Weird Perspective

GIMP has a cool filter called Map Object that, among other things, allows you to rotate perspectively an image along all three major axis. I just rotated along the Y axis for this one. The result is somewhat squenched and blurred, so I resized just the width and also ran a GIMP Refocus filter. Not pretty, but the image is small and the results just for possibilities.

Re: Weird Perspective

Many thanks Butch, I think so, but then I may be a little biased

Re: Weird Perspective

Hi everybody,

Cass,

I agree with Butch... you have a beautiful daughter ... Sure, we mothers see our kids with the eyes of love ... but deep down we manage to remain objective...

For what the picture is concerned, I agree with Frank about "the tree growing out of her head"

What I did for her arm is:
  • Selected/copied her arm and pasted it on a new Layer.

  • Used Transform and Warp Tool to re-dimension it.

Attachment 1 > My final result.
Attachment 2 > The arm detail.

Re: Weird Perspective

The right arm needs fixing too. It's shorter and thinner, opposite of what happened to the left arm.
