Learning Photoshop CS4

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am taking a photoshop class at the local college. I'm hoping to continue taking more computer graphics course to pursue a career in computer graphics and web design.
For our first project we had to create three 3-D forms using the airbrush tool. One requirement was to create a cover for the project. We were given complete creative freedom for this part of the project. I like that!:)
I used one of my Creatively Fit photos for the background. It just so happens that this picture was taken on campus. Here's the original photo.

And here's the photoshopped version.

To give the cover a more cohesive look I used the cutout filter on the photo and increased the color saturation to match the vibrant hues of the forms. I added the airbrush at the bottom of the page and the little Ps logo the the left column.

So what do you think? Do I have a future...? I am really enjoy the class!

My daughter is a college photo major, so she's great at PS. I, hoever, only now the basics. I'm snowed in here, though, so looks like a good time to sharpen my skills!

Looks great, I should look into taking a class maybe. Learn some new tricks...problem is, I don't use Photoshop and I'm too stingy to buy a new program! lol Good luck!

Stopping by from SITS

I'm lucky if I can upload pics. Photoshop scares the heck out of me, but it looks like you're getting quite a grasp on it.
