Composite Planes by skyeconnelly Composite Planes by skyeconnelly
My first attempt with compositing multiple images together in Photoshop. I know it's not amazing, but it was pretty time consuming and I'm pretty excited about it, being my first attempt.

I'm also not entirely sure it's in the correct category...

I cannot take credit for the images themselves, only of the post-processing/compositing of the 3 images. The original files were made available for download along with a tutorial on a CD from Digital Camera Magazine.

Nicely done. Especially for just starting out. :D

Critique wise: One thing to look at is a way to blend the sky based plane more with the image. This will come in handy in future works with making all the pieces have a visual unity and tie them together more. As is, it is much sharper than the rest, making it stand out.

Also, as for the dirt on the wings, with the lack of dirt in the grass, it would seem that the plane has been there for a while, so some work to soften and dry out the dirt on the wings (or add some grass in it) would make it feel more like part of the field.

Hope that helps. :hugs:

Thank you for the critique, and I fully agree with what you're saying. I
followed a very rudimentary tutorial video, it was like 5 minutes long
and rushed through everything, so I did the best I could, but I think that
you are right.. if more time were spent on this using tools in ways I have
yet to perfect (but hope to in time), I think it could be much more realistic. :)

Glad to offer any insight. Really like what you have. And am impressed given that it's your first time out. The tutorial may have been brief, but you seem to have grasped what they threw at you.

Judging by my wife, photomanipulation can be quite addictive and fun. So many ways to explore conceptual expression and the depths of your imagination. :)

Oh yes, very addictive! Once I know how to use everything in
PS, I'm sure I'll be much less frustrated and therefore more likely
to spend more time with it!

Luckily there are tons and tons of tutorials out on the interwebs, so lots o fun to be had. Frustration will fade away. That's how things were for me with AI. Learning all the things I could do was a lot of fun.

Oh yeah, Youtube has been my saviour!! Wait, is that the french way to spell it?
Hahaha. I do that sometimes. It feels more natural to write colour than color.
How weird am I?

End rant... sorry. :giggle:
