That's what it's all about Marc. Thanks for sharing.
thanks, i hope you liked them

Really cute children :>)))
I think these are lovely shots, every one.
I really liked No 3 and hope you dont mind at my processing - if you do I will of course remove immediately.
Just great shots to kleep - well done.
thanks for looking, i am glad you like them
ray, please tell me how you did what you did, i like it
my photos are straightt from camera, i really shoot for the correct balance.
sometimes, i like to play.
So pleased you like it
I am so glad you like what I have done as I know sometimes I get a bit carried away. When I see such a nice shot can't help but have a dabble!
Anyway, this is what I did if it makes sense -
First I cropped your original shot
Then I dupluicated the layer so I always had a spare copy in case I fouled up. (Always do that)
Then I decided to isolate the children from the background.
I did that using Rusell Browns Advanced masking technique. Now this is a video and is a free download - do a search on google for Ruseell Brown advanced masking and it will take you to his site.
However, if you want another way to extract the girl sthen you could use the pen tool and create a path. Then go to quickl mask mode and get the selection better.
Then invert selection and clear the remainder - that leaves the girls.
Now you can work on the girls.
I did nothing more than some levels adjustmens and some painting with light.
Then I created a new blank layer below girls.
I then filled with colour.
Then go to render (in photoshop) and select clouds - hey presto - you have a nice background.
I also blurred the outside edge of the girls' hair for a more flowing effect.
Then I created the frame myself and posted.
However, if you would like any help or if there is anything you are unclear of then I would be only too pleased to help.
I ditched the psd file but could probably rework image and send the opsd file to you.
However, the main thing is probably the extraction and that would not be in the psd file.
However, see how you go with te above - any problems please let me know and I will help.
Very best wishes
