This is the surreal landscape I created with photos I took. It combines this outside volleyball scene on Kent campus with things from other places I visited as well as on classroom element and one home element. I first chose the background then opened additional photos. I quick selected or lassoed those and refined the edges. I also used the burn tool to darken them. I manipulated shadows to make it more surreal.
I think this needs some work. The refine edge tool I applied did not remain how I set it. Overall, I would like to redo this. I wold choose a background that is better suited for more objects in the far background.
