    Default title suggestions

    I am considering my first submission for competition. I took it to a local PPA meeting and it got an 81. It will not crop to an 4x5 so I have floated it on the canvas, but am not sold on that position. Also, I named it scarred for life as their is a large scar on his hand. Judges remarks included having a problem with the watch, suggesting either burn it in more or include it in the title. Im at loss on how to include the scar and watch in a good name. Suggestions, including placement of the image?

    Default Going another way ...

    Hi David;

    Here's my version. I flipped the image (and then added the time part of the watch going the correct way) I deepened it and made a step-mount with the subject layer much smaller. I hope this helps. Oh ... my title is :
    "Time To Rumble".

    that is kinda subtle, but I like it. Makes them look to see why it was named that.

    Hi David;

    I made a duplicate of the image (not a dupe layer) and then used a rectangular marquee tool to select just the watch face. I had it the original way and not flipped. I dragged it on top and then lowered the opacity to about 60% so I could see the image below ... so I could align it. Then I upped opacity to 100%. Next I added a layer mask in Hide All and used a white brush to reveal the correct watch face.

    Craig,

    I don't know about anyone else, but the amount of effort you put into help folks out here is commendable!

    I honestly want to thank you for all of your help!

    Dave,

    If you leave this one flipped, it makes you wonder if that is a wedding band on this right hand.

    And, if I was as observant as I claim...

    Doh!

    But, can you see a judge doing what I just did?
