Chapter 12. Creative Techniques > Creating whimsical composite images

Creating whimsical composite images

In many cases, as in the previous example, you composite images to improve them in a way that isn’t obvious to the viewer. You don’t want to draw attention to your work; you just want to improve the image (as in our ship and sky example). But sometimes you want your audience to wonder how you created that cool special effect. This composite for an elementary school astronomy fair poster is an image that looks pretty realistic, if a little fantastical (Figure 12.80). (See the color plate section of this book for a full-color view of this task.)

Figure 12.80. This final composite image was created from two separate images.
