Mock Studio
Posted By: Gaelen, 02-09-2008, 10:58 AM

I took this picture at a car show last year and decided today to try and get rid of all the people in the background.

It's not great but I think it turned out pretty good.

What do you guys think?

Wow, that would take a long time to cut out the girl and the ar. Somehow it is obvious that the girl did not blend into the background well. I think some sort of ground and adding a bit of curve with different strokes to create a sense of dimention might help

Nice effort there.

I probably would have tried to keep as much of the ground as possible ... and keep the shadow from the back of her legs too.

I think it's a great effort and what might work even better is make all of the added background a darker colour. Not 100% black but maybe about 80-90% or so. If you look at the top part the blend is quite good but the bottom has harsher edges showing the edits.

I love it Gaelen, very nice effort.

I just answered your PM, I hope that you had a good time on Saturday.

Or how about leaving the girl and car in colour and greying out all of the background? That may work for you as well.

Nice work Gaelen, whatever ever else that you're going to try with the image it needs a little space above the model.

Take care, Heinrich
