Default He ain't heavy

Going for a comic book look here. Two different shots. I masked out the man and dog from a mundane parking lot scene (Topaz Remask 3), then superimposed it over a shot (layers in CS5) taken in Mono Lake. Then applied a poster effect from Photoshop and added a bevel edge. C&C welcome.

I like it a lot. You were successful in getting the comic book look.

Very nice. I think the poster effect added to the picture and didn't take away anything as some filters do. I like the expressions on the face of the man and dog, too, not really looking eye-to-eye but paying attention to one another.

Hi Walter,

You certainly have a command of Photoshop as everything you post is really interesting, as is this composition.

whenever I've attempted to use the poster effect, the image just doesn't seem to come out the way I had envisioned. I got a copy of CS5 back in October and am still trying to figure out all the features that it offers.

I hear you Zig. What I see in the preview window when I'm doing various filter effects isn't exactly what turns out when I click "OK". Takes practice and experimentation. Appreciate your comments. Walter

I like it too. I use the poster edges a lot, especially to sharpen things. Then I fade it back using soft focus. You isolated the dog really well. Even his hairs show. What program do you use to extract?

I used Topaz Remask 3, which I'm still learning.
