Photoshop: Lemieux and Robinson
Found a cool picture of Hockey Hall of Famers, Mario Lemieux and Larry Robinson. I really loved it since it had Lemieux in the bright yellow Penguins jersey. The Pittsburgh Penguins only used the bright yellow jerseys for three seasons, from 1981/82 to 83/84 and during the 1984-85 preseason.. That dates this picture as Mario Lemieux's first pre-season.. The bright yellow jersey was originally a third jersey for the Penguins, used only for Sunday home games. In the 83/84 season, it became their primary home jersey. It was used during the pre-season in 1984-85 before being retired. I think it'd be sweet for the Penguins to bring them back as a third jersey.
When I found this picture, I couldn't help put to play with photoshop on this. I wish I was trained in it but I mostly do trial and error. It was expensive to buy, but I've used it enough to get my money's worth. I like the effect I used on the background in the first picture but then I like how the players in the background become anonymous in the second picture. What do you think?
Also, who is that guy over Mario's shoulder? I swear I have a hockey card of him looking just like that. I can't name him. Here's a close up. It's bugging me that I can't name him. Can anyone name him?
