    Gotta go back and fix a few thing - mainly dude on the right needs that white around his head gone.

    Original looks out of focus, which may be why the first one is looking weird.. I also don't like the super bright/fake blues, but you're starting to get it down. I think I liked the other one you posted (in the other thread about this one) better.

    It's what the customer wants though , so it doesn't really matter what we think :rofl:

    There is your mistake, you gotta start off with a good material to work with, you can't just take a crappy picture thinking you gonna fix it all later and its gonna be great.

    I was blinking to clear my eyes cause its the morning. Then I realised its OOF.

    I think the shopped one is okay. But the players are too bright against the dull sky and grass. I understand that they should stand out, but they are a little too bright imo.

    I think you've focused on the stands instead?

    your other attempt was WORLDS better than this one.

    you've got focus issues, CRAZY halo's (the black guy has a ring of white around him...), blending issues, etc.

    The sky was a poor choice for this image, not in terms of subject matter, but an old, grainy sky from 1940 does NOT go with a grain free, over saturated HDR looking digital shot from 2008. Go back and look at the HDR's your trying to emulate - the source material looks identical, making the merger believable.

    You also have 0 shading on the bleachers, so they stand out like they're the most important part of the image, and them being the only thing in focus doesn't help your cause...

    Oh, and the sky isn't sure if it wants to be black and white or black white and teal. There's definitely some color in the middle of the clouds...
