Woman in the Field
My latest composite image, a bit inspired by the Fine Art work of Brooke Shaden. It is somewhat darker and moody. I photographed the field and the birds in my neighbourhood.For the sky I also blended overlays, namely a stone texture and stained paper. You have to click on the image to see the correct colors, since G+ seems to forget the embeded color profiles in the previews.

Brooke Shaden has quite a nice style and is a unique person. I probably want to create some darker imge with a red dress as well. I think it is a good combination.

The Lilipond
Summer is finally here in Germany. A great time to hang out at a nice lilipond...or eating ice cream. Here I used the program Dynamic Auto Painter to give the image the feeling of a Monet painting. I think it is quite nice for some images. You have to view it large to see the nice painterly effect properly.

South African Living
In the town Stellenbosch, near Cape Town, in South Africa, you find many beautiful houses in the typical Dutch-Cape style. This architecture is very charming, particularly when the owners have a nice garden as well. Stellenbosch has also one of the best Universites in South Africa and it is located in the heart of the South African wine country.

Composite meets Cosplay
My latest photo composite image. Here I combined my background of the historic hallway with a great Cosplayer of the female worrior. I wanted to give it a cinematic look. The particles, which are done with the sandstorm action, give additional dynamics to the image. Do you see anything to improve ?!
That is my friend N8e, who provided the image of the worrior: https://www.facebook.com/N8e.cosplay.photography
And Illyne Cosplay: https://www.facebook.com/IllyneCosplay?fref=ts&__mref=message_bubble   The character is in fact "Wonder woman" from the game "injustice"

Thanks David. I made a new selection of the sword and right hand and also lowered the contrast in the sword a bit, which made the effect a bit too strong. Time for the next composite, Frank.

5 Friends at the Lilipond
Recently I shot this image of the young ducks in a lilypond. The small ducks can actually walk on the leafs or take a rest.  Shot with my Canon G9 and processed in Lightroom. I need a new camera with a bit more zoom.  One can also call them "The 5 Amigos" according to the movie "Three Amigos" with Steve Martin.

How to Match Color and Light in Photoshop Composites
In this free tutorial I will show you how to combine two photos into one final composite image. You will learn how to adjust the color and light when we retouch a model into a new background, so that the result looks seemless and believable. I hope it helps you with your own composite images.

Here I treated my photo with a painterly effect, which nicely underlines the painterly feeling of the garden scene.

Wonder Woman
My latest photo composite image, with some improvements. Here I combined my background of the historic hallway with a great Cosplayer of "Wonder Woman" from the game "Injustice". I wanted to give it a cinematic look. The particles, which are done with the sandstorm action, give additional dynamics to the image.
As some people enjoyed the background, I also offer it to other people for their own composites: http://frankbramkamp.myds.me/wordpress/store/

Thanks Mark. Probably some more "Cosplay" images are coming. Their costumes put it on a new level.
