The One That Got Away

Anita Ott Student 8/4/2005 6:53:13 PM

Wow, totally awesome. I love this shot and your added border is great. Exactly how did you do this? Haven't seen one like this before, but it is great. I see big things for this photo, great job. #289102

Dana Whitford 8/4/2005 7:08:26 PM

Awesome editing. #1678503

Kay E. Mahoney 8/4/2005 9:17:58 PM

I agree with Anita on this. It is awesome. I haven't seen one like this either. I think we'll be seeing it again. #1678760

Susana Heide 8/4/2005 9:31:53 PM

This is one of the best uses I have seen for the "coming out of the frame" effect! Awesome work! #1678777

Ronald Balthazor 8/4/2005 9:41:01 PM

Perfect. Excellent treatment, Marla. #1678801

Cheri K. OBrien 8/4/2005 10:17:12 PM

I love it! Wonderful action shot, you've gone above and beyond by taking the riding right out of a movie set. Like a 3D television effect. #1678857

Outstanding image, Marla! I love it! #1679043

Marla, this is a very imaginative way to present this image and for me this is the best I've seen on this site. You should have a winner #1679054

Marla A. Lehr 8/5/2005 5:40:03 PM

Wow!! Hi everyone and thanks so much for your kind and encouraging comments. I liked the shot to begin with, great looking horse, but it begged to be somethng other then a snapshot. There was a no score for this ride, by the way, because the calf had to be roped around the horns which were heavely padded. None of the old "yank 'em off their feet". Anita, this was done in PSCS2 using lots and lots of layers. The horse/rider and then the calf were extracted from the original background. The background was replaced with clouds/dust and I added extra dust with an airbrush. Lots of fun to do. #1682904
