Exercise: The Manipulated Image

For this exercise we are asked to create a composite image which appears to be a documentary photograph, but isn’t.

I have just taken two photographs for this exercise, both taken during my various shoots while doing assignment 5 for The Art of Photography. For this exercise I mainly used the quick selection tool to select the man on his bike, created a separate layer and copied the selection to the new layer. I then used the transform tool to scale the figure to what I think is the correct size. The layers were then merged and exported in jpg format.
