    Here is an image i played with of Chambers, and what I did.

    1) Cut out Chambers
    2) Darkened background
    3) Pasted normal Chambers on dark background
    4) Inserted the Superbowl. (Scaled and Rotated it)
    5) Added Omni lighting to background.

    To me, it doesn't seem as nice as I hoped. Any suggestions on how to improve the image would be greatly appreciated, before I add text.

    Does the Superbowl look ok? Should Chambers be catching the middle portion of the superbowl instead of the ball?

    Just looking for expert advice...

    I like that idea. Thank you. But what kind of an effect would you suggest. Im not fully knowledgable of what each effect does. Its a lot of trial and error for me. :wink:

    clik on the chambers pic layer, go to image>adjustments>brightness contrast, then mess around with each one untill you get something good. then make a copy of that layer, go to image>adjustments>desaturate, then put the it to soft light, you dont have to do that one but it might make it look better...

    try that and post the results

    Ok, so here is what I did.
    1. I desaturated the background to make it black and white.
    2. Adjusted the brightness on Chambers' layer.
    3. Added a lens flare in the BG
    4. To show the lighting effects of the flare on Chambers, I added an omni
    light source.

    Does the lighting I put on the Chambers layer look realistic in regards to the flare, or could it be better? i.e. More intense, bigger radius, etc.

    You can try a motion blur to get the feeling of motion and speed. Not too much blur though.
