iPad Photoshop Fun

Heron iPad Framebreak

Recently the iPad has been a source of inspiration for my photoshop creativity. Since it functions so well as a photoframe, it seemed only natural to use it as a frame for frame breaking. I also must admit to being astonished that I seem to be the first person to see its pristine reflective glass as a place to put an ice skater. It seems so natural to me. Here are my first two attempts at iPad photoshoppery. Heron iPad Framebreak

The iPad photo is not mine, but Yutaka Tsutano's. My daughter's iPad case is much more scuffed up than this. The heron is Jane's.

The spotlight lighting in the original skater image, by Charissa, was difficult to replicate, but I did my best. It's still not totally convincing, I'm afraid. I am proud of the non-trivial shadows and reflection of the feet, though.
