This is my latest piece of work. It is a composite of about 7 different images (3 different hands, 2 different wooden stumps, the background and the sky). All the images were shot by me and then edited in Photoshop and blended with layer masks. Altogether the editing took nearly four hours. Taking the shots and finding suitable tree stumps took about two hours. So all in all this image took about six hours to complete. Even after all that time, there are still aspects of the image that I wanted to improve, ( The hand on the right could have been blended better. Anyway see what you think.
One of the other things I should have done was to create some shadows, if anyone knows how to do this they could email me or leave a comment.
