Let us keep this thread open until Ged's challenge #44 starts on december first.

From then everybody should focus on the new challenge #44!

I'm undoubtedly planning to launch another 'inbetween' challenge after closing the submission period #44.

The last one before Ged's #44 challenge tomorrow.

Can't wait to see what he came up with.

I know this is over but I have only just had chance to have a go. Sorry!

I would love feedback/tips on how to improve my lighting on this one, I feel like the Orangutan doesn't fit and I don't know how to make it more realistic :(

Hi Sc00t, for me the mayor problem is not the light, i think dont fit because the diference in the quality and focus between the two images.

Cheers!

Cheers Argos, I presume that is just a case of looking more closely for photos that are gunna fit the bill? It's a tough one to do for me that - how do you decide which is gunna fit with which after you've edited them?

Manipulation isn't my speciality, but it's a recent interest, so I wanna get into it some more.

Thanks again!

Add an adjustment layer brighness/contrast to the ourang-outang and reduce the lightness full to -150
Now you can start working on highlighting the parts exposed to the light. In this case, from the back left and from the right side.
Since it is a mask make that active and with a soft brush at 50% and considering the anatomy of the animal brush away the dark part where the light should hit the animal
If the effect is not strong enough you can make the animal layer active and dodge gently the light parts

The best option is always search for the image that fits better, looking for same quality and light, but you also can try to match the quality and light (eggy example) it's harder sometimes imposible, but it's more fun and it can be usefull in the future.

CHeers!
