The One That Got Away

Anita Ott August 04, 2005

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 August 04, 2005

Awesome editing. #1678503

Kay E. Mahoney level-classic August 04, 2005

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 Ms Heide August 04, 2005

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

Perfect. Excellent treatment, Marla. #1678801

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

Marla A. Lehr August 05, 2005

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
