These are three composited images from one of the projects from my digital compositing class. This project is intended for students to get familiar with the fundamental concepts behind digital compositing and image based lighting such as identification of camera parameters, shape reconstruction, identification of light positions and intensities. The students select an artificial object and create a seamless composite of this artificial object with an image of their choice (which I will call "original" image). To be composited images can be handdrawn or CG.

I asked students as artificial objects to consider impossible objects. Three students chose impossible objects and created good composites. These composites include correct perspective, correct shadow and correct shadow colors.
