    Help with my Proposal

    Hello all, thank you for taking your time in viewing this post. I will be proposing to my long time g/f on Christmas morning and would like to surprise her with a photo of me "proposing" to her. I have a picture of her candidly looking towards me with a cheesy surprised look on her face. I did my best in taking a photo of myself on a knee. I would thoroughly appreciate if someone could take the time in putting the two together and into the background I have chosen. Thanks a lot and I appreciate your time once again!


    If this is not at all possible, any tree will do. I realize my photo is dark, but I apologize. If this is entirely tasking, please let me know and I will compensate you for helping me in such a big way!!

    " will compensate you for helping me in such a big way!!" is this something for print or device use?

    BTW the lighting is all wrong thats some serious time to get it right

    unfortunately, the photo of you is pretty low quality so it's extremely difficult to color match, here's a quick edit, but as you can see, the colors on you are way off :S

    ucdt, if you can supply a better shot of yourself with the proper lighting, the composite will look better.

    Re: Help with my Proposal

    THANK YOU all who have responded! I actually love it the way it is. The poor lighting makes it look cheesy / cartoonish which will be perfect for her to be like "What the he**?" I knew the photos were poor, but I love the final outcome!!!

    Re: Help with my Proposal

    Just for future reference, the worst part of the lighting was that you took the picture with a window behind you, like taking a snapshot into the sun. So avoid that and tings will match up better. Anyway, I'm glad you have what you need.

    Congratulations and good luck. I don't think you need it, the luck that is. Any guy who could come up with such a corny, romantic way to propose to me would have already won my heart!

    Merry Christmas!

    Hey chit, try messing around with shadows/highlights on the image of the guy separately you may be able to get a closer contrast to the girls lighting
