Why hand placement is important

Postby biggerry on Fri Feb 12, 2010 10:56 pm

Not really a question, but more of a realisation from my part and a great example of an image to depict why it is so important :up:

Hopefully this tip might save someone else some grief ! :rotfl2:

Nothing a bit of Patch tool and burn tool can't fix :)

Image PS. hope you don't mind. If you'd prefer I take this down, please let me know.
I thought I'd take the hand above her head out as well, as it looked as if it was about to attack her :lol:

GREAT shot by the way !!!

Nice example Gerry!

:idea: However you can improve this photo somewhat by removing the hand

Then using the hand in another photo :shock:
