Picture of the day

Nice picture from a gamer called Adam Lewis on BBC's pictures of the week.



Looks a bit photoshopped though, shouldn't the 7 be more elongated? And what about the number opposite the 7?

Yes. And fuzzy.

Both 7s look painted. Also, why would only the 7 show up in the shadow and not also 6 at the other side? Even if the die were translucent enough, I don't think the numbers would show up. I even doubt a coloured shadow would.
If I find the time, I'll try and recreate this on the weekend, it's a simple enough setup.

It's definitely photoshopped, and poorly. There's no bezel on the 7, and the number would only show in the shadow if there was no number on the other side. The colored shadow WOULD show up if the exposure on the photo were cranked up really high, but other than the painted-on 7, this is basically underexposed. So your friends are 100% spot on. This is a nice concept, though. It could be done better.

That's my official "professional photographer" opinion.

I got coloured shadows in this shot but that was a completely different lighting setup.

Yeah, and it's easier to do on a white background. Great shot BTW, I like the focus.

Thank you!
Randomly, this was actually a photo I took for gbsteve in one of those "comment here and I make some art for you" memes.

The 8 looks completely wrong. Like its been the subject of a horizontal flip and they forgot that the shading would be the wrong way round.

*sigh*
