Default Museum Shots - Before and After

I took a few shots from a museum trip the other day and took them out of their environment.

I like the extractions you did with the jeep and jets. What editing program did you use? I also like the photo with the 2 jeeps with a little tighter crop.

I just used Photoshop for cropping and combining the images.

The best way to close crop is to use the pen tool and make sure rubber band is set. Get in close and just patiently outline whatever it is you want to make a selection. Click and drag any parts of a curved nature.

You did an excellent job with these. I especially like the jeep in the road with Spitfires soaring overhead. If I may offer a suggestion as an additional edit to number two would be to clone out the wheel chokes on the Starfighter so it can travel a bit faster along the taxiway.... ;0)

That Starfighter is a deceptive image. Its not moving. The lateral movement illusion is due to the paint job. The black stripes have a fuzzy edge. Also the plane doesnt move well with no pilot.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE!!!

My sort of thing especially the jeep....it really works for me.

Just wondered what you mean by rubber band...I use pen tool but not sure what that is...unless i have it turned on anyway

I really like the works indeed and all look great but the jeep does it for me.

Best wishes

Ray

If the rubber band is on as shown in the screenshot when you click and drag you will see the line between the points. If its not on you will see only the points.
