Default Circles -- Real or Memorex?

This is actually three separate shots I took, plus two more to create the shadows. The guy was performing at a local street festival here in HB. I captured him front and back, and then placed him on another background which is less cluttered, then created the shadows. Several hours in CS5. C&C Welcome

Very impressive post processing work.....shadows are perfection.

The vertical lines on the ground really compliment the circles.

Very cool! Love the processing, too. I would not have noticed that the background doesn't go with the picture if you hadn't mentioned it. Even knowing it it is still hard to tell. Not to mention that I'm impressed with the guy as well as how you put this together.

Surely very tricky work, Walter

Well done with the pp. I could tell 'something' was up with the shadows and lighting when I saw it... but still good work, nevertheless!

I think I would have been very dizzy doing what the 'circle performer' was doing, if he was really 'going round and round.

Nice touch to the challenge!

Wow!! fabulous composition... From www.nitpickersanonymous.com - you ought to clone the shadow off the hoop on the right side, but, WOW again... :-)

That is fantastic, must have been a lot of work, but sure was worth it!
