I learned a lot by doing this one. I never tried to create rain before, so this was fun. I was inspired by a previous contest to create snowy art. Maybe next time I'll do snow... hmm... Source files: car, sky (hit return at address line, to view sky image, it's protected from cross-linking) and umbrella... Oh. and rain (on the lense). The other rain was made by noise and motion blurring, with select masking. Let me know if this helps you at all with your chopping Or, if you have any suggestions for me, please comment. Thanks.

This is a great entry. Very realistic. Only critique: for me the reflection on the hood (house on original car pic) seems wrong...
ZERS. Well Done. I actually like the reflection on the hood. Gives the entry more 'reality'. Because we can't actually see the tops of the buildings there on the right, who knows what the actual top looks like.
good. continue that attitude in doing artwork. and you have a long way to go here. goodluck nextime.
As we can't see what is to the right of the car, the inclusion of the reflection on the hood of the car (from your source image) is fine. Your attention to detail is very good. The rain on the camera lense, the vehicle lights on the truck, the street lamp, and the added umbrella for the pedestrian make this a well executed CHOP. Congrats in advance on the win.
EXCELLENT... This looks very photo realistic... Great job & keep up the great work.
SNAP...this is GREAT.. you put the umbrella in the guys hand an' everything...
I still say..... This gets better everytime I look at it. WTG.
like it, but i think the depth perseption on the shadows are all out
The reflection on the floor is off. It looks like the man looking out the window is floating.
You incorporated some of the other contests nicely AND we can recognize McCain from the back ... Good job...but, Hillary isn't playing to this degree any longer What's she doing on that roof. Trying to save Obama or just feeding the pigeons, uh crows, uh baby vultures .
The reflections are....strange. I know it can be hard when a Vertical Flip isn't enough. But now it looks like he's standing on his heels. And the reflections of Obama and Hillary aren't correct either. Hillary's umbrella is higher than Obama's head, but in the reflection it's the other way around...
McCain doesn't look like he's floating to me...just standing on a very shiny floor...right.
This is probably the best joint use of several apprentice contest sources I have seen. Very impressed. Love many details. It's a hoot.
Hillary has lost her marbles, walking a parapet, sporting an umbrella on a nearly cloudless day. The crow is some of the crow she'll be eating for a while to come. McCain has briefly woken from one of his long naps (boxer shorts), wondering what the fuss is about. Obama is being restrained for his own safety. He is exceedingly exuberant and jumpng for joy because it's his 47th birthday. And the Party is to the left, the far left.
Thanks Steve...whoddathunk. Ok, so we got a problem with depth perception, shadows, floating people, weird reflections and big heads...but there sure are a lot of comments...and I'll bet everyone smiled when they saw this one. I know I did.
This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with photoshopping provided source images.
Photoshop this rainy day image (CLICK HERE to download) any way you wish. Some examples are - addition more people or objects to this rainy day image, changing the weather in the image, putting it into some new environment, movies, paintings. These are just some ideas.
Many thanks to Jenny Rollo and Stock Exchange for providing the source photo.
