I have zero skills, so I am not criticizing per se. But some of the walls (I see it in sigs too) look like the objects are just pasted on top of the backgrounds. But some look like the object is indeed IN the picture. Is it a matter of adding blur, or some effect that makes the difference? A Guy

For the most part most walls are a simple copy and paste with assets,
Blending modes/ layer modes/ perspective adjustments/ opacity... can and usually are used,
It really depends on how much time the creator wants to spend on the project which can take some time and experimenting,

As Nick pointed out lighting effects with pasted objects is even more interesting if the object already has different lighting then the project has,
Most walls/ themes cost money and the free ones have more bugs than you can shake a slick at

Look through a cameras lens,
Only one object can be in focus usually.

Thanks Mike. I don't remember that one. In any case mine wasn't intended to be the Borg ship. It was just a fractal (Menger Sponge) that I thought would work.

Really nice Steph, but is it ok (again) if I could give a bit of advice... The light source is coming from the back so there would be very little light on top of the space ship, you would get a bit coming through the engines and reflecting onto the top of the ship but this would be yellowy (not white) like the sun/star that is shining behind and there would be some really dark shadows casted ontop aswel... I've made a very quick rendition below but didn't spend much time on it but I'm sure you get the idea what I'm trying to say
Good advice. I never get it right myself.

Compositing is a difficult skill Bill. It is a really matter of matching light, colour and perspective, trying to match what the object would look like in that environment. The expressing I have heard is "selling the fake". Nick's advice to Steph is a case in point. I think I'm getting better at it but not there yet.

Good description for Bill

Everything square in space reminds me of the borg ship

There was also a rumor that Gary might of been a used can salesman ?
