I had to stop and think a bit to figure out why it isn't plausible.

I agree. Very nice Photoshop work -- especially incorporating the tree branches into the overlay of the boy on the tightrope!

Aubrey is now a twin :) The 3yo was supposed to be in the photo, but during our photo day she was super crabby. Tough being a 3 yo! The branches were a last minute add Steve.
Here is the 2nd photo of the set. I am still working on the others. I had more planned, but the talent did not want to work in 95 degree heat. :-D

Here are the photos used for the composite. The blur was in camera. My next composite I will use the Nik tilt shift (Bokeh) filter.

That shot of the car was really cool. It looked like there were little people getting a portrait done by a giant. It is interesting that the original pictures of the kids are taken level but in the final shot it looks like the are being looked down on. Nice nice work. How cool would that be in video.

Sidd, I think the perspective of the car creates the illusion of looking down. The kids are small in the frame so the weight goes to the car setting. It did cross my mind to shoot from a ladder the kid's shots. The first one, tight rope, I did shoot the original photo about his shin level.

Thanks! And yes to Photoshop Elements. I am unfamiliar with the Express. Anything that supports layers. I first brought the photos into Camera Raw and adjusted the exposure on the kids to match the car best I could. The color temperature was about the same. These adjustments can be made in PSE too. I shot in raw and exported as PSDs for PS. I added soft contrast & warmth in NIK plugin Color Efex Pro 4 and a little light too. These adjustments can be made in PSE or PS, I prefer NIK.

The layer panel:

Thanks for the reply Cheryl,
I get totally confused looking at all the different Adobe Photoshop products. Looking through their website it appears most everything they offer is on a rental/subscription basis, which I can't justify. I found Photoshop Elements 14 on Amazon for $80 and then they have a package with Premier Elements 14 included for $110 but I have no idea as to what Premier Elements and if it's worth the extra $30. Also, is the version 14 a huge improvement over version 13? Now I'm seeing LightRoom ($143) showing up everywhere but I don't know where that fits in either. Are you familiar with any of these products?

I can tell you that Premiere Elements is Adobe's consumer level video editor. If you plan to edit video then you would want the bundle of both applications, if you don't plan to edit video then you only need Photoshop Elements. Version 14 would be a good start, I recommend if you are just starting out then start with the most current version available. In my opinion the Adobe Elements products are well worth their price and some of the most powerful consumer software applications available.

I will have to let others explain about Lightroom as I am not very familiar with it myself. I think that is primarily used in addition to Photoshop, not in place of Photoshop. Here is a pretty clear explanation of the differences between the two applications

Chuck gave a great explanation on the Adobe products! From what I understand, the PrEl consumer version has about 70% of the full PS version. I started with the PrEl and was happy with my needs at the time. I do not have Lightroom, but it is a photo editing program that can be used by itself. It does not support layers.
