QUOTED IMAGE

I was just looking very closely as something seemed a bit odd to me. Then I realised that there seems to be a discrepancy in the shadow cast by the Silencer/forend of the AR15. The heavy shadow seems to be on the wrong side compared to all of the other shadows in the image. I'm guessing that you had a light off to camera right to throw some extra light on the gun, but that it is a bit too bright compared to the rest of the lighting.

4 light set up. The rifle may have been hit with one of the rim lights and I overlooked it or in my processing, I enhanced it too much. When I do these composites, I get distracted because I'm literally laughing when these start to come together. It's very easy for me to overlook things because of that.

I don't mind criticism at all. I know where all the flaws in my work are. It sometimes cracks me up to read comments sometimes. I mean, there's a huge flaw in that picture and anyone who actually looked at it real carefully would have picked that flaw over the shadows any day. I criticize my work all the time but at the end of the day, if it makes me laugh, I executed it perfectly. Again, I don't take it personal. I just would think that if someone is going to point out fine toothing my picture, at least get the most obvious mistake pointed out.

This is a reason I don't criticize others work.

Thanks. Do processing in Lightroom and then to photoshop. After it's done, it's back to Lightroom for final tweaks

I use Lightroom to adjust the raw photo and sharpen. From there it goes to photoshop to clean dust and scratches. Then I'll try some filters and make adjustments from there. I don't really have one set process in Photoshop. Just try different things until I get to where I like it. Then apply watermarks. From there I'll take it back to Lightroom and sharpen a bit if necessary. Maybe add a preset effect to the whole picture and then it's done
