Photo Illustration



I pictured my photo turning out so much better than this. I couldn't figure out how to get the second pump to look right on the corn. Everything I did it just looked fake so I decided that it wasn't going to get a pump.

Your lighting matches up well on the 1st pump with the natural light coming down, and I like how you made the 2nd pump darker. I really like your concept and its executed nicely!

The lighting on this is pretty good. Where the shadows fall in the scene and where the sunlight peaks through is replicated almost perfectly on the corn. It would seem you did some pre-visualizing before you made the image.

Sagen, this is a lot better picture than I had in my mind! Nice Job!

This looks like it could be in Newsweek in an editorial about ethanol fuels. I like how the nozzles stick into the corn. Good job.

Ummm, giant corn. . . Looks pretty good. The lighting matches up really nice across the whole scene.
