This is the first time Ive tried something like this so any creative help is welcome.

Nice cutting out of the girl, but it looks like the front mushroom is the thing that is in focus, not the girl?

Yeah I agree, I think the key would have been to have had the background first then set the lighting to it but this was an after thought...
Thanks for the comments!

To me, the lighting on the background is not bad or even inconsistent with the subject or the other foreground elements. It just seems too different - maybe it is a lack of anything in between - with some intermediate OOF.

@ Lantz, doing what photoshop projects is difficult.. but there are lots of tutorials on this..

the key tool or thing i do in photoshop to get the subject to match the background is to use gradient map adjustment layer this allows you to match up subject to your background tones and lighting..

Pham,
Love this. Color looks a little off to me on my monitor, but what a great shot.

Shadows on his face and cloths suggest the light was camera left.
I,d have brought the light around enough to get his ear completely in shadow. Otherwise like the image. The up shadow from the background light looks a little weird but not too noticeable.

I like it. The only thing is the skin looking a little unnatural.
The blue gives the rest of the image an almost ice palace feel.

If I were doing the post, I'd go for the cool whites as you did but try to get her skin to almost glow a warm healthy tone. Just different visions.

Once again, great image.

TYPO: It was high camera left, sorry!

and I didn't even think about the 'up shadows' , good call.

i think i have that exact version you are talking about at home.. i will have put that one up too..

in light room i have my presets saved and i press buttons and then do some fine tune adjustments and render about 4 versions ..

best money spent both CS5 PS and LR 3.0 EVER ! don't know how i did with out it the first year in photography..

thanks DMWard
