When you are working with Composites you want to make sure the lighting is in the same direction and what you are inserting matches the lighting of the scene.

You also want to be sure that your subject is the same proportions as the image. Such as the top one.. He is a little small to be realistic and doesn't match the scene lighting. (I am not nit picking or bashing your job, it is a good job)

Here are a few examples I have done.


This one was just for fun, but I like to think of it on those days I just need to get away

Then without the halter.




ETA:

Those were done before I found the wonders of masking. I will have to do a few with masking instead of cutting.

Masking? I'm just starting to play. Will have to research that! Nice job on your pics.

I paid like $200 bucks for Photo Impact Pro and the instruction book that came with it is at least 3 inches thick... suffice to say, I have not fogured out how to use the darn thing !

I see Mask mode, but can't figure it out :-(

I just found the joys of layers! Still don't fully know how to use them, but I'm working on it, for at least the next 2 weeks anyway. laugh.gif
