Default The hunt

I took a photo today of this Indian hunting a buffalo. The statue was placed in front of the buildings wall. KMAdakota suggested using a different background. The background that I used was of a sunset taken a couple of weeks ago. It gives a whole new feeling to the scene depicted here.

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.

Interesting idea. Why not go around the edges with the blur tool at a very small setting. It will make the image seem part of the background and not pasted in. Also fill in the bend in his arm.

Laycey,
If ya don't mind some honest criticizm, I'll give ya the lowdown.

The main thing that kills your image is that the background and foreground light does not match. Maybe you weren't intending for it to match, but the look kills the image.

There's also some edge left behind on the indian.
After selecting, feathering your selection a pixel or two will help.
I agree with Caryl,..blur the edges slightly.
