Here is another one I did of a golfer, I think this could be used as an underarmour golf ad with some minor tweaks, what do you guys think?

Looks great except the fire. Just light the thing on fire and drop it to make it look like he is going to catch it. Then, he can either catch it and burn himself or.... move his hand out of the way. :D

Also, the bright light in the back right is kind of distracting. I like your other golfer shot much more.

Flames are real, he just dropped it and let it hit the floor. Couldn't convince him to catch it haha

I can't reconcile "Golfer" with "Parking Garage."

If you're going to build an image that relies on visual trickery, I'd suggest you layer in a driving range behind him with burning distance markers.

Also, the flaming ball is the point of interest and that completely overshadows the Under Armor logos.

I see a golfball ad...

Really!? The processing makes the fire look really fake to me. It even looks like its layered on top of the ball. Oh well. Awesome shot, real or fake.

That is the way the fire photographed, I didn't mess with the fire at all. I actually masked it out of all the adjustments. And I understand about the parking garage, but right now in WI we don't have any driving ranges that are in use as of right now, spring can't come soon enough!

Ah. Ive used the blue gel deodorent before. It burns nice and slow. Its doesnt burn too hot either. You can put it out with your hand, like alcohol.

What does a parking garage or dilapidated building have to do with golf?
