Weekly Photoshop Challenge

For more info about the challenge, click here.

Here goes:



Digging through our PhotoDiscs I found this photo and decided these fellows needed a bit of drama on their hike. Problem was, the drama had to come from behind and there wasn't much room...



... so I made some room by expanding the canvas, copying a portion of the photo from in front of them and pasting it on a new layer behind them...



... then I used a layer mask and a soft brush to hide the seam. That should be enough room for the drama. Now, why did I bother with that if I'll be knocking out the background later? Because I didn't understand what was wanted at first. I was tired and slow of mind. After looking at what others had done I realized I was on the wrong track.



"The drama"



Add "the drama" in silhouette form.



Then to make it fit the desired theme, I droped out the background, added iPods and fitting (in many ways) text.

And that completes my first entry for TXArtcGal's Photoshop Challenge.

Fantastic!!...and DEFINITELY original! Sorry I didn't get here yesterday...my kitty had to have emergency surgery (I'm exhausted!).

I love how you combined more than one image...and, of course...the added bonus of your sense of humor truly ads!!

Thanks for doing my challenge! I'm about to put another one up! Hopefully you will participate again!

Even though you used that nasty-ass spider, it is pretty funny.

Very good! I was reading the first three steps and hadn't scrolled to the "drama added" pic yet, so that was funnny when I finally did. And I absolutley like the wordplay in the final caption. Well done. I may have to check out this photo challenge thing... not thaqt I have time for it or anything. :-P

Awesome! You merged two pictures. The results speak for themselves!
