a few weeks ago i went to a scale model exhibition
it was held in a darkish hall so the 50mm f1.7 got a work out
anyway there was one model that i liked the photo heaps
but i didnt like the stuff that surrounded it
so i cut and pasted it into a new background
what do you reckon?

i added a reflection and shadow to finish it off

It looks really good to me - I can't tell what's been cropped out. It looks very natural.

Amazing, if you had not said anything I would not suspected that it's not natural, well done.

Nice composite. It almost blends in perfectly. The lighting matches, as well as the overall color.

The reflection in the water seems a bit strong. If you lower the opacity it may be more realistic. The only place I can really sense PP work is the area between the model's legs and the rocky surface.

Other than that, you could have fooled me completely.

Good job!

i was surprised (pleasantly) with the lighting
considering was was taken in a room with one window and interior lightingand the other is outside in natural light on a sunny day

the shadow i just guessed at
there was no science applied lol

and the one thing i dont like about the reflection
but can do nothing about
is it shouldnt just be a mirror of the figure
but the figure viewed from lower so the gap between the arms would be greater

but it was fun to play with

i wish i had done it bigger now
