    Francois needs some photoshop help.

    My dear friend Francois here at MTBR recently asked for my help in trying to convince his aspiring shredder of a son that he can "hold his own" with the youngins'. Being the new business owner that I am and under the gun with deadlines though, I thought I'd reach out to the wealth of photoshop talent that is you fine folks...the PASSION forum. We've done this before.

    NEED PHOTO SHOP FOR BIKE SHOP....passion

    Let's do him a solid. It's the least we can do, right?

    Attached are the two images to start from. But don't let that stop you from getting creative. He wants to impress.

    Here ya go. The exposures are very different --- I messed with levels a bit, but they're still a ways off.

    This might be the best edit so far...

    Good luck. Looks like the light is coming in from different directions in the photos. Not to mention one is taken in a wide open, sunny area and the other is taken in a shady forest. I know it can be done, but the best I can do is offer a 6 pack for whoever gets it looking right...and is willing to travel to Sedona for said 6'er.

    Wow. Looks better. I think the overall position of the rider vs the rest of the picture is a little off. He's carving way to hard to his left to be hitting a drop like this, especially with how off-camber the log is. But like I said previously, I'm only good at drinking beer and riding a bike. Photoshop or any other photo editing software confuses me more than trying to figure out the draw to road riding...

    The pics offered are going to be extremely difficult to merge in a way that makes them look real, so I like the idea of having some fun with them. Here's my contribution. . . .

    I would keep the log and make the bubble girl hold the Pliny, It's way more realistic if it looks like the little bugger stole FC's last Pliny
