Default A little fun photoshop? NASCAR Vegas pics added

A friend of mine from work went to the Vegas race. Took a buncha pics for me, told me some cool stories. This is her (in the jacket):

Now wouldn't it be fun to PS the image and add this one:
Name:  nascar_testin.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  73.7 KB

Then crop the bottom to match the bottom of the Dale pic? If someone wants to play with this (huge favor for me, she doesn't know), I can email the full res pics.

This could be eerily hilarious. She did get to meet him, but didn't get a pic. There'* room for Dale just to the right of Lisa.

eh.. the lighting and hue are off a bit.. and in the picture of dale, his arm is partly cut off but its not too noticeable in the pic. Also there isn't as much room as it looks like there would be. his arm has to be in front of her, unless i shrink him into a midget

let me know if you want me to try to touch up the colors a bit more. Im gonna grab a bite to eat first

also i think i may have made him to short :/

I will most definitely give this a try when I get home.

Yeah, that parts a bit of a problem, because she'* sitting, and he'* standing. it'll look a bit akward with the other people next to them. If it'* just a shot of them, it wouldn't look so obviously out of place. And frankly, I'd get rid of his arm, as if it'* resting on the barrier behind them. That way, you can move him closer.

He'* a LITTLE taller than that. The scale is close.

Anyone that wants to try this, PM me your email addy and I'll hit you with the non-photobucketed pics.

In B/W it might look perfect?

Here'* some more pics Lisa took while she was there. Look carefully. She was IN his garage stall, and IN his pitbox as well.

A little more work on the lighting, and remember she'* half-sitting on pit wall, and is 4" shorter than him at least. The hand behind the back is CLASSIC!

With him behind her. Still not satisfactory, but need to get back to work. Maybe I can find a picture of 24 to put in there that has better highlights.

I still like this one the best so far. The only problem is that he'* supposed to be about 5-6" taller than her, and she'* half-sitting on pit wall. His head seems bigger than the other 4 people also.

If his magnification/scale was slightly smaller than this PS, and he was a little taller (about where the top of his head is now even though he'* too big), by simply shrinking him and moving him up, then cropping the bottom a little more again.
