  • Improve this composite

    Hi

    I am working on a composite and would appreciate any suggestions on how to improve it.

    Thanks.

        Re: Improve this composite

        Everything. You didn't blend it at all. You need to match color of all the parts, saturation of all the parts, Hue of all the parts. Perspective. Lighting. You need to cut it out better. You need to expose her legs normally, not darkening with low opacity overlay...

          First fix the foreground lighting to match the model

            How should the perspective change? Isn't her eye level supposed to be on the horizon?

              Brighten the foreground? Making the model match the current foreground would make her too dark I assume.

                Here is a saturation map, what needs be changed?

                  This is a check on the hues. What needs to be changed hue-wise?

                    Your model shoot straight, buildings from below and water from above. What about luminosity map? You have 3 lights on the model, it's not supported by background. Rocks near her the same color as her skin, how come her skin that saturation and hue, and not the rocks? Dark halos around body. Glowing elbow, where is the light source? Dark brushes on buildings not supported, no depth, just splatters...

                      Good observations, thanks for the feedback. Is this the problem regarding perspective? (different camera height and angle)?

                      Is there any way to make the image work with these background images? I tried perspective warping the background but I couldnt get it to make any major difference.

                        This is largely a colour and light direction issue not camera angle. Warping the background of very little use.

                        You must remember the horizon line will always be level with the viewers eye level regardless of being on a ladder or lying down (for viewer substitute camera).

                        Due to this the horizon line will not correspond to your subjects eye height as your position may be below them (you sitting down them standing) or your position above them (you standing or on ladders and them being sitting or a child).

                        In the case of your model she is obviously above the camera height but that does not really matter as it suggest the camera at lower (waist level). Correct the colour and lighting on the model as previously said and you will be closer to a believable composite

                          I am working on a few levitation composites. Any ideas on how to improve this composite would be much appreciated.

                          I am trying to pull of a composite of an athlete and lightning. I want to give the impression that the athlete is lit by the lightning. I am having trouble making this look good.

                          I have added some low opacity light streaks from the lightning in the direction of the...

                          Hi

                          I am working on a composite of an athlete. Unfortunately, when he was shot the end of the fingers were covered with black cloth so I need to hide this somehow. See attached composite and close ups of the hands. Any ideas on how to fix the tips of the fingers?
