Recently, I went to the zoo and got some shots of a penguin. He swam right up to the window so I shot away. Later, back at home, I thought, “What could I do to take a so so image of a penguin to the next level?” Well, after staring at it, it finally occurred to me to put him in his natural habitat. I googled for some public domain images on the web and ended up compositing this thing. I sealed the deal with some bubbles with a custom brush in Photoshop and finally added some overlay textures for an illustrative look. What do you think?
