Hi Gary and Kdastonjr, Thank you for your comments and suggestions, input is always welcome.

Nice photoshoping on the image but you should try to Filter/Blur/Gaussian Blur. Try that on just the model layer to match the slight blur in the wings. Still a great concept.

Very creative work. Thanks for the Photoshop tips. I'll try them.

Above comment should have read "these are NOT terribly difficult to make ..." Hate it when I do that.

Hi Niko, Thank you for your kind comments, these are terribly difficult to make with a little practice.
Best Wishes, Doug

Nice photoshop work!!! Very creative. You blended the layers marvelously. A tedious process, I know, but the work was well worth the effort.

Hi Artsy, Thanks for commenting. There are several versions of this. In the final version I changed the color of her swimsuit to match the color of the wings. For what it's worth, the thistle and the butterfly were taken in northwestern Illinois, not far from Chicago.

Wow! That is way cool!! Great Job!

Hi Brian, Model Katie was removed from the original with the Polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop. Zoom in close, use the space bar to move the image around. Edges were removed with the eraser tool using a small hard brush set at 100% opacity. The image was scaled with the move tool. Same process was used for the wings. Shadows on the background image were added with the burn tool. Thanks for commenting :)

I like composite images like this. The shadows under Katie's legs add to the realism.
How did you extract her from the original image without making the edges choppy?
