The Watchers

They're so still, they look like statues!

So, at the factory where they make replicas of the Terracotta Warriors, there were these two standing on a porch, seemingly watching the tourists come and go. They really weren't very well situated, so I gave them this almost-square crop and a textured background (originally an off-white wall). The shadows of the Warriors and on the top and right edges of the frame are the result of adding an inner shadow to the texture layer with the Warriors and palm branches masked. The result gives some depth to the scene, and they don't look cut out. I like that!
