    This was a snapshot I took in the livingroom and I added a background to cover up my carpet, a moody but saturated "pop" and a border.

    Does it work?

    Liking this a LOT - more arty, very interesting. I think this sort of image would be v appealing to your clients.

    How did you add the background?

    Nice shot of the little girl.

    If composing in a background - why not a wooden dance floor. I think it would be more suited to the shot than what appears to be a bed mattress.

    Thanks...oh this was a snapshot, I had to chase her down and get what I could. 30 seconds later that tutu skirt was mama's "monster hat" . ...LOL

    The background is a texture paper, and I just added it on top of the picture, reduced the opacity so I could see where she started and the background ended. And erased her back...

    I'm hoping client's would like something like this but I think I need to fix it up a bit better, and darken that corner to lessen the "mattress" effect... haha...
  8. Nice blending of the design with the skirt. You would never know it was not there initially. Photoshop?

    This is definately a keeper for when she is older!

    Linda, what do you use for borders? Are you PP'ing in CS or LightRoom? Great shot!

    Thank you... Yes CS3...I picked up the border from another photographer. But you could find some at the Adobe homepage too. I'm pretty sure!
