  1. I just review your every single blog post related photoshop work..and it was awesome..will be back to read this blog soon.

  2. This is a decent tutorial, but be mindful of the perspective on the buildings in the background. It is way off as the picture you pulled it from was taken from atop another building, but the camera in the collage is at ground level. Just an FYI.
