Description Photoshop this picture of Carlos Boozer:

Source Images
Comments When I first looked at the source image, I noticed that you could kind of see the players reflection in the hardwood floor, so I figured I would go with that. My first thought was to place the players on a giant mirror and having the central character snorting cocaine off it, but I couldn't find a decent source picture of a mirror. Then, I thought I'd put them on a frozen lake, but I couldn't find a decent picture of that, either. I did find some lovely pictures of mountain lakes, however, so I figured what the heck. I had a lot of fun getting the reflections right, but then I thought it lacked a little something. So I added the carp sticking out of the water. And then I added the little jet of water coming out of the carp's mouth. Finally, just for the heck of it, I added a shark underwater heading toward the carp (which you probably can't see, but it's there, trust me).
