Ok I love to play with photographs of my self and family I have made some really funny ones most of the time well I set down today and started working on one of my own which I rarely do. So I just wanted to see what you all thought of it and if you have any pointers it would also be cool! I have attached it this discussion.

I love to digitally enhance and manipulate photos. I'm more picky than most so when I remove a background from an image I get upclose so that the edges are smooth and you can't tell it's been changed. The best manipulations are those which you can't entirely tell that it's background doesn't go with the focused subject. IMHO the edges could be smoothed out around you but I think this is a great start. Keep up the good work.

You did a great job with the hat. What I'd do with your photos is zoom in really close. It may be time consuming but the end result is often very well done. Also when you try to incorporate a focal picture into another photo be sure to use the burn and highlight brushes that can be found in Adobe PS. This will allow your photo to take on the proper lighting of it's new surroundings. When you zoom in close make sure your brush size is small enough so that you can get right in there and make the proper changes. What I find that makes a really nice photo look smoother around the edges is when you turn the 'harshness' of the brush down so it has faded edges. here's an example of some of my own photo manipulations. (in the descriptions I show where I got all the elements from) http://serenityfhotography.deviantart.com/art/Elements-98934672 (this one is my own photo and manipulated by me) These two were stock photos that I manipulated http://serenityfhotography.deviantart.com/art/surise-call-97098089 http://serenityfhotography.deviantart.com/art/Raindrops-97090797
