I really wanted to do a simple image and work on my lighting in the picture; this is why there isn't a lot of flashy things; it is a simple photo-manipulation. I wanted to try because one of my best friends (home from the military) and I were viewing multiple photo-manipulations and she was pointing out mistakes on them. (She went to school to be a photographer and learned how to do a photo-manipulation correctly.) And on a lot of the ones we looked at she pointed out people don't follow the light sources; so I wanted to try and improve how I do them.

This took me a few days to do; but I am proud of it. It may be simple but I love how it looks. I know I won't win the contest; but I am still proud at how it looks.

I also wanted to try and use my own stock; to see if my stock is really good and if it can be used in images or not. And I think I used a lot of my stock creatively. At least in my mind I did lol.


Please leave critiques on how I can improve. Please don't just say you're shadows need improving. Say something like; try looking at the shadows in other parts of the image and try to match them all. I want to get better; and I need help lol.
