I think you've found a career in sports photography. Thank you for sharing! S-
You have a valid point here, thank you. I am posting here specifically for critique and look forward to other's views.Ceropegia wrote:I love the action in this shot. However, since you posted in the Critic's Corner, I would like to add my two cents and hope you will not be offended. The grass spilling out of the frame and then dissipating into the background is somewhat disconcerting to me. I really think the boy should make a clean escape from the frame with no grass extending outside; or, perhaps as an alternative, extending the grass to the edges of the image would make a more solid looking escape pathway for him.
I believe she is thanks for commenting Tom.TomCofer wrote:I like this shot a lot overall, but I do get the feeling that something should be done a bit differently, not sure just what. Perhaps Martha is on the right track. It's something you might consider experimenting with a bit more.
Wonderful food for thought Duck, thank you for comment.Duck wrote:You are on the right track PSjunkie. Here are a few tips to get a believable 3D effect.
Based on this and the other image you posted, I feel the image is being over complicated with too much spilling out. For your next attempt I want you to keep the following guidelines in mind.
- Think of the frame as a window you are looking through to the environment, not the subject. The environment stays outside.
- Now, think of your subject as stepping through that window into the viewer's space. Based on the viewer's perspective of the exterior, through that window, the subject will break the frame as it steps in through the frame. Those areas will be what get masked.
On the technical side, build your frame on it's own layer and apply a perspective warp so the far side of the frame looks slightly smaller than the near side and the horizontals get a realistic taper as it recedes.
Finally, add a drop shadow to the frame and any part of the subject that springs forward. This will sit the whole structure on a ground plane and give the subject some depth.
Hope these tips help.
