Hi All,

I uploaded a picture and would like to here some of your thoughts on it.

Hi!

I think it's a brilliant idea! But... the dog is "out of sync" in terms of luminosity with the rest of the image. Its whites are too washed out and the dark aren't dark enough.

You could apply a level adjustment layer to the dog's layer, lower its whites, darken the shadows and move the mid point towards the left a bit. Here's the restul :

Looks great :)

I'm not sure how Ray got the dog so good. I tried :rolleyes: but also added some brick shadows (quickly) and softened the bricks just a bit.. they seemed too sharp for the dog.

I could not agree more-munching on a Golden Delicious Apple while working on my PC gives me a quick, extra boost.

Ward, I'm glad you liked my Apple :D You know what they say... An apple a day keeps the virus away :)

(you may substitute virus with spyware, malware, adware and damnware...)

By the way, I was really only joking. No hard feeling towards my PC friends was intended.

Gary, I'm going to reveal my total ignorance... I know it's my apple, but I don't know what this other sad face means... so, I'm sorry, I didn't want to reveal the fact that, again, I didn't understand.. :(

If you'd care to explain, I'd appreciate (and laugh!)

Do you mean to tell me you have NEVER had the sad apple face? :eek:

That was the profile. :D

Here is my updated version I think I got it close to what you two were trying to say or should I say convey.

Corbin your dog selection has a cut out look. You might want to try running the blur tool around the edges to soften it a bit so that it blends in more. (duplicate the layer first and use the duplicate in case you don't like it)

Hi Ray,

Thanks that means alot to me since this is my first try at creating a large part of the picture. The only real part of the picture is my Dog Charlie. He is part German Shepard and part Corgi. Mostly he looks like a Shepard chopped off at the knees.

Hi Corbin ...

Oh you are doing well with your image ... the second one does look so much more realistic. Its not easy doing images from scratch ... but you have done a great job on it. Well done !! :)

Thank everyone. Yea the sad thing is he is getting up there in the years. He is about 12yrs old and I don't think I will be able to get another one like him.
:cool: :(
