    Default Pandora's Box - well not really its owned by me. :smile:

    Got quite giddy with this at one moment, I managed to create the mask layer from a back ground selection. Its amazing how the little "wins" in processing can keep you going. As you can tell its definitely a layered in back ground with just a touch of burning to darken the edges and hopefully give it some depth on the screen.

    This is the last of the images from my "sit in the conservatory for half the day moving things around take photos edit later session" so will have to hunt around for other things to use.

    Taken as always with Canon 500D flat background before layering came from using my reflectors plain interior. On light management were the vertical blinds, tilted just so and then probably back again a thousand times - if they every fall down, I'm in trouble.

    Very creative indeed and well past my skill level in PP.
    Its the final image that counts however created...so I'm not knocking that at all.

    Di, of all of your afternoon's work, this one works the best for me; the background fits the object perfectly and the lighting and shades look completely natural to me. That's not to say the others weren't also very good, but this is my favourite.
