Create a Photomanipulation of a Shark and a Diver

Create a Photomanipulation of a Shark and a Diver
We're humans. We live on land. Sharks live in water. So if you're swimming in the water and a shark bites you, that's called trespassing. That is called trespassing. That is not a shark attack. In this Photoshop tutorial we learned how to create a surreal underwater scene. First we created a underwater scenery, then place a Shark and Diver. Then add Adjustment layers for color grading,  and finally use Camera Raw Filter.

  1. Applying human thought/morals to a shark biting a human while swimming in the ocean as trespassing. I guess we can go further and ask the shark why it bit the human if the human is just harmlessly swimming. It’s not like the shark owns that part of the ocean since the shark didn’t pay/purchase it. Who’s to say the shark wasn’t the one trespassing on another fish’s property?

  2. I was getting ready to start the tutorial but found that the diver file come back as an error 404. Is there another diver file available?...thanks.
