    While I always approve of more House in Star Trek, it does rather look like his cane is stabbed into her leg

    Thanks for the ID, Lanny77. I was about to ask who the guy in the wrinkled shirt with womanly fingernails was.

    ^ Yeah, I think it would've been better to see more of Dr. House in this one. Not his whole face... just up to his stubbly chin.

    Actually, Morrissey looked a lot different. Here's the original:

    ^ Wow... you're right. That is quite a difference! The good thing with a shot like that is that existing lighting and shadows are very diffused and uniform. It's tough when your starting photo has strong shadows already in it. What technique did you employ to create the bright spots on his forehead and nose? To create shadows, I use a polygonal selector tool with feathering set to 5, then go to Hue/Saturation and cut back on Lightness. I also play with turning down Brightness on the Contrast tool. I didn't have good results with introducing shine, so I tend to avoid doing it. I think maybe the issue was having feathering set too high.

    Those ultra wide security belts make the wearer look like they're either doing the high waist elderly man routine or a restaurant waiter. ;)

    So....you don't think that guard could take Kirk in a fight? What if it were face to face?

    The guy's left sleeve (on our right) looks way too long! :rommie: Otherwise it looks normal. Btw, who is he? Also, I wonder what the deal with Kirk and his heavily rumpled shirt. It looks a little peculiar for this body pose... was it pieced together from different scenes?

    Yes, two scenes put together. Now, Kirk was not altered in any way so I am not sure why he looks "rumpled" I guess he just was. The security guard is me trying to get onto a fan -produced show. So I need to fix the uniform...? Would I take Kirk...?

    ^ Ah, OK I get it now. It must be that really wide waistband that's making your arm look so long. I always thought that they were centered on the top of the pants, but it looks like you must have the bottom edge closer to the pants top edge.

    As for Kirk, I guess it's because he was taken from a scene where he just got up after wrestling with someone. In this scene, I'd expect him to be standing more upright and with one leg forward, as though approaching you from behind. Maybe if you move him a little closer (forward and to the left), it might work a bit better. As if he were just able to leap onto your back. :)
