  • First Ever Blend - {Suggestions?} -

    I just started working with images, and how to blend them...I just wanted to get some feedback on my first one. I am searching for feedback about this image:

    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y37...e/watercar.jpg

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions/comments

    (By the way, the car in the picture is a Nissan 2004 350Z , and the image blended into it is an ocean view)

    Not too shabby but watch out for areas like the wheel arches, the way in which you have juxtaposed the two images can be betrayed by the fact that when a surface changes its angle from your point of view... what it reflects will also change... I'm just a git, I always look out for these things sorry

    I would revise the placement and treatment of the signature as well perhaps

    oh and....Welcome to the forum

      Thanks for the feedback, I see what you mean. I'll try to get the reflections and angles a bit more exact...any other comments?

        agh...I can see yer gonna get sick of hearing from me but it would perhaps help the image if you set it in an environment where it would indeed reflect the sea...when i first read the post I looked at it and just thought...you've put some text on top of your car and knocked the opacity a bit...right, well......

        Twas only when I scrutinised your post again that I scrutinised the image more.

            That would make for a nice paint job.

              I would agree with adding some surrounding to suggest the reflection of the water. Could be a lot of work, but great for practice and honing your skills. Not to be a stickler for details, but technically, a blend is one object transforming to another, usually with steps and transitions. You might want to play with the filters a little too, like the ocean ripple. Go easy on it though, you can't control the perspective.

                Mod approval? Pick the second post. Thought the first had vanished and did it right the second time. And delete this one too.
                thanks!

                Hi JJ and welcome to GDF.

                I gave up trying to read your small type on about the 3rd page due to all the spelling and grammar errors.

                I agree with what has been said above. I think you can stick with the font but the brain imagery must be re-worked. The idea is a good one but has been done a lot. That can be good or bad depending on...
