The rock on the right hand side of the image bothers me.  Damn nature, getting in the way of aesthetics.

He clearly left it there by choice. It would take about 20 seconds to remove it and he is clearly competent in post-production.

I'm telling you, the background wall of trees, the tree at right at the middle distance in the beam of light, the island of trees, the boat....those are all completely separate photos composited and blended beautifully.

have a look at this tutorial: http://photoshoptutorials.ws/photoshop-tutorials/photo-manipulation/create-this-breathtaking-photo-manipulation-of-a-tightrope-dancer-in-photoshop/




lol.. yeah thanks for that crap looking example.

even when i take my glasses of it still looks like a bad composit... that is hard to achive.

Yes, I agree, I think I'll shoot myself if i spend 8 Days learning the technique from one of the Guys mentioned, then end up with something as bad as "Tightrope Dancer", but i need to be careful with my humour here at CR, had one "warning" already today.

if your serious then i not only pity your taste but wonder about how you can ignore the technical flaws in the composit.    ;D

Of course I wasn't Some of the people in this thread seemed to be unaware of this technique, so I spent 30 seconds searching for a tutorial that would give them the basic idea. You seemed to miss the point when you thanked me for the crap example.

That photo is taken by Rarindra Prakarsa. Love his work. You can find more info about his style in Facebook and photo.net I believe. I think there are tutorials and articles explaining his workflow, I can't remember where i saw it but google can help you there.


As has been noted, this photo is not the work of Rarindra, but check out this work from his site and compare it to the original image from Arment.  In particular look at the trees between the boat and the background.

Top left side of the image was burnt, the highlights of the trees in that area were dodged.

The mids were lifted to bring the haze out more. Those are the fairly straightforward observations. In fact the top left is the biggest giveaway. There was probably some composition going on too.

Also a fair bit of levels and curves going on there as well. Doesn't look like any standard filters (like Nik or Alien Skin) were applied though as it's a nice clean image. Too much dynamic range to not of been played with though.

I figured that if it was a composite then the images were taken from the same area/shoot at least and not completely different locations. Looking at the original image, it appears that most of it was made by just moving areas of it around, the lighting was pretty much natural but just emphasised. I was surprised that the boat was shopped in tho.

Don't you guys think it's a bit crazy that we're at a time when it's hard to tell a real photograph from a shopped image??

The backgrounds of the two pictures are not identical.

Andre was stood a few yards further to the right.

I stick to my comments in earlier posts. It is a Rarinda inspired picture.  ( In fact it is a blatant copy ) ( Actually I have no right to make that comment as I don't know for sure who took the picture first or even if they were taken on the same shoot. Rarinda's does exhibit a typical early 5D mk1 brown cast to me though which would suggest it was taken a while ago. But the brown tone could be for effect).

However I think they are both beautiful.
