Oh what happened to this guy..
is he trapped in a square??..is he pushing the frame?.. looks like it (".)

I'm in a fun mood today and tried this experiment.
Following yesterday's..transcending borders, I have been thinking of many things that could be done using TL's blue background, I was a bit annoyed with the automatic black frame line yesterday SO, I decided to USE it today ! :)
" when you can't beat it..." ;)

set the camera on 10 sec timer, on tripod, took a pose of 'pushing a wall' . downloaded the picture and PP applied..
removed the background.
placed the picture I took on a blank 800X800 pixel
TL light BLue page in the bottom left corner ,. as u can see.

do you like it?
hmm,. i'm thinking ..would this be a good idea for a theme.. ?? what do you say?

Thanks for your time.

Hello Ritz,

Very creative idea. You pushed your imagination indeed ! Is this guy a frame-maker ? Very well seen and done.
Best regards

Hi hi ha!
This made me laugh, Ritesh. Very imaginative. You should have put more shadow of the man so the foot will not look like it's floating on air. Just my honest opinion.
Have a great day, always
Freddie :)

Hi Ritz,

here is excellent an idea, full with humour, it is what is called pushed back the walls or its own limits and to increase its horizon. Great PP work, cheer !

would be a great theme, want to have a go.

This is a funny one Ritesh, creative idea, may be he is pushing the limits or his luck :)) it would have been better if he did not have the blurry look around him though.. tfs

Cheers Tina :-)

very cool and well done ! I really like this - something different !


Very creative and the first of it's kind. (that I know of)
I like it and the whole cncept of a theme.
The legs are a little soft focused, perhaps a little bit of a soft brush was used to remove the original BG in photoshop. Well thought out and executed, thanks for the informative notes.

Hello Ritesh,
This is cleverly conceived and wonderfully executed. I like the empty white space and with you at the edge of the frame. Good work, regards - Danilo

Hi Ritesh!

What a funny picture.
You had such a great idea!
It's simple but so so effective.


Hooo really?
Ça me plait bien cette dose d'humour dans une présentation simple mais qui fonctionne bien!

I don't really like the blurry, feathered edges on the guy, Ritesh. As for the creative idea, I do like this. The backdrop in tl's background colour works perfect. You might have added a shadow to create more of a "3D room" feeling.
Nice work, TFS

Excellent! Very artistic, very creative!

Great shot here, and good thing to use the black frameline.
