Every year Fotoskolan STHLM hosts a competition i collaboration with Wacom for their senior year retouch students. The students are provided with one picture, each year a different one to the last. This picture have to be included in the final result in one way or another and we were given the proportions of 50x70cm. If we wanted any frames or passaprtous they hade to be included in this format. This is my entry.
The picture we were given as our starting point
The background I used was photographed in my apartment complex's courtyard in Säffle, Sweden. All my neighbours passing by probably thought I was really weird. Photographing dirt and ugly things instead of a nice sunset or flowers haha. The rest is stock images from Adobe Stock or Pixabay mostly.
