    I think eventually every artist finds a style they either prefer or excel at. Unfortunately, in graphic design you are not designing to satisfy your own idea(s) of art and style. Graphic design solves...

    Hi,

    I have created a photomedia design by compositing 5 photos I took into 1 image.

    You prob had this question asked many times before but I really want to know how people get their photos to look so perfect.
    Like this:

    or even something simple like this:

    Looks better than my photos.
    I have this photo but it just doesn't look good.

    This is the original photo I took


    And this is the best I can get it.

    Using this tutorial: http://www.photoshoptalent.com/photo...g-freckles.php

    But it still doesn't look that good. The colour and lighting isn't good.
    Any tips, tutorials, or ideas I can use to improve the photo.
