This is a test of layout, effects, and post work. The female is a detective (yeah I know, no gun but this is just a test so a quick pose was used) on stakeout and she is watching one big piece of tech trouble strolling around. I wanted her to look like she is trying to stay hidden in the shadows. For that effect I made a second copy of her and then lowered the exposure on the second image to zero. This effectively blacked her out. Then I used the selection tool to select key areas I wanted in light. Following that, I gradually erased the selection using a large feathered brush that I diminished in size as I allowed more light. I am still not sure if I like doing thought captions this way but for this scene, I think it plays well. Overall I think the flow from the 1st panel to the second worked fine, and I like the overall mood. Looking forward to the comments.
