    Don't Mess With Me

    A recent photo I made of my nephew. I'm pretty happy with the composition, not so sure about the processing.
    Thoughts?

    Looks pretty good to me Brian - only thought was - perhaps - the young chap was a little TOO bright compared to the rest of the scene.

    Good point Colin. My thought was that he was being lit by the lightning, though I agree, perhaps I overdid it.

    Not a fan of this form of image manipulation but I think you have done a great job. Only part that doesn't look right to me is that there appears to be a halo effect around the lower legs, that doesn't look quite right. Apart from that great work.

    I think the photo of your nephew is very good. Excellent pose and he has a great expression/hair. There is a little bit of Wolverine about it.

    Thanks Dan.
    I'm glad you pointed out the halo on the legs. I added some white around the edges of him, thinking to help him stand out from the background some more, but I too kept looking at it and thinking, do his legs look right??? So thanks for reinforcing that point for me. I do like the 'halo' around his upper body.
    Also, I have never tried to make an image like this before - I just had a vision in my head I wanted to make, and my nephew couldn't produce real lightning bolts from his hands
    Does this version look better?

    Thanks John and Sabe

    Colin, I still don't pay much attention to borders for photos on internet, perhaps I should

    Hi Brian,

    I think you missed it - I toned down the shirt ... the boarder is just an action I run
