    Default Trapped in a lightbulb

    I had a bit of a play with some of the blending modes and a couple of images from pixabay.

    Nice job, Frances. The frogman seems to get into some tight corners.
    Judging by the age of the coke bottle, he's been there for some time.

    Could use some kind of highlight to create the shape of the outside of the bulb. But nice effect.

    Not an image you can look away from easily Frances.
    What blending process did you use?

    Great image by Frances but I really like the highlights you gave it Gary, its given it body and lost that flat effect. See it in a whole new light

    Thanks everyone

    @Gary: I agree some added highlights on the bulb really make a difference.

    @salaam: I used photo of a lightbulb and blended the lightbulb on top of the diver/frogman that i clipped to the same shape as the bulb with a softlight transparency(blending mode)
    Oh I almost forgot I used the liquid colour FX to distort the diver a bit to give the effect that you are looking at him through the light bulb.

    I used the photo healing tool to remove the filament and inards of the bulb first. It was fun to do.
