    In my meandering of the general gallery threads, I have come accross a few of these types of pictures, it looked kinda fun so I gave it a quick try. This one is not the greatest but alright for a first try.

    You did a fine job with this...I have experimented with a couple, but never found anything quite cool enough for me to keep...i like the image you chose to do this with..

    Thank you very much everyone.
    Well I am not sure how other people do it, but what I did was put my camera on a tri-pod. set up what I wanted to take a picture of. Set all my controls to manual. Then take the picture. Next I opened the book. Took a picture with the same settings and that was it as far as picture taking went.

    The rest is in photoshop. I just used the clone stamp tool and cloned the inside of the book overtop of the cover at a low opacity and that was that. Well I did mess around with some saturation and what not. And thats that. I hope that helps you out.

    It seem about right to me. I would try a larger brush, with very soft edges. Also try and do it in as few strokes as possible.

    Great shot, took me a little time to work it out, because it wasn't a car with an engine, but it's a cool effect and this is a great way (and probably unique) to use it!
