I took a picture of this toy, cut it out of its background, put it in a new document in front of white background and added some shadow. My real intention was to make a SIMPLE(white bg) bunny wallpaper. Something doesn’t seem quiet right with this picture tho. How can I improve it to make it look like a real wallpaper?
It's not clear what you mean by "make it look like a real wallpaper." In any event, I see 2 issues with the image:
- The bunny is overexposed and that's causing the highlights to be blown out. If you shot it RAW then you could decrease the exposure a bit to fix that. (You might then need to compensate by raising the mids.)
- The shadow doesn't match the lighting. The bunny is lit from the right side, but the shadow is drawn as if it was lit from above.
How can I improve it to make it look like a real wallpaper?
The highlights are blown. That means information has been irreversibly lost. If you still have the raw file, then maybe the highlight information is in there and can be retrieved.
Otherwise, go back and take the picture again, this time exposing properly.
