    Well I'm no king of photoshop, but I have used it. But since no one else here seems to be a photoshop king either, I thought I'd say hello.

    This question really depends a lot on what you want to do with your pictures. For example if they are a sequence of pictures, say of someone running, I'd suggest you layer the pictures together. It would give the effect of the person moving across the picture. If it was a modelling kind of shot, why not layer the photo with a flower or something, and make the flower (or the person) transparent. I don't know there are an almost infinite number of good ideas, and like I said it depends on personal preference.

    As for how to produce effects like those above, you should read the help files provided with photoshop, they aren't great but they get you started. Also try this, I haven't checked it out in detail, but is on the official Adobe website:


    Or try typing "adobe photoshop" in google and looking at what comes up. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Re: Photoshop

    Perhaps giving the guy in your image some facial movements would build some more 'character'- and thus, make the pic a bit more interesting...

    I am attaching a character I drew that incorporates some simple movement.

    If you are interested, I can post how I did it using Photoshop and ImageReady?

    Re: Photoshop

    I found some really neat tutorials and techniques on this site:Photoshop Techniques.

    They have links to other sites and a community forum as well that should help with your questions on techniques and such.

    For a place to upload your original artwork (photographs, photoshop creations, etc.) try Deviant Art.

    Check some of the catagories they have and browse a few of the ones that you are interested in yourself....

    I'll warn you, you will never browse the entire community!

    Not a bad place to post original artwork and interact with like-minded artists. Poetry and prose are welcome as well.

    I took a look. Very impressed. You are quite an artist. What kind of camera did you use to take those photos? Lense/s?
