In this contest, we're going to manipulate a photo in such a way that the subject of the photo is appearing from behind leaves.

Your work has to create the impression that the subject is actually sticking out of the leaves with at least one part. If your subject is completely behind the leaves and only visible through gaps, the picture won't be on theme.

The subject you use can be anything you desire. Objects, animals, or even sceneries where a part of the scenery sticks out of the leaves.

If you don't know where to start, have a look at this tutorial on how to achieve this effect. Also, make sure to follow Nemanja Sekulic on Youtube, he makes excellent tutorials~

You can use any pictures of leaves you want. You can also use grass or bushes to achieve the desired effect. If you prefer to use the same leaves that are used in the tutorial, here you can download the pictures: Leaves

Some other pictures you can use:

Be creative, and let's do some old-school photo manipulations!

Good luck!

PS: It's very important to vote on every entry, the more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!
