Thanks so much for the compliments Carolina and Julie, and so glad you like it! The little guy of course is my son, and the gentlemen are my husband, my father, my husband's great uncle, and my husband's grandfather. Thanks again!

Beautiful job on this one. My husband is in the AF. I would love to know how you achieved this so that I could possibly do the same thing. Would you share your technique with me? Really enjoyed your gallery. Thanks, Lisa

Lisa - I would be happy to share the general techniques used here. I am using Photoshop CS. This composition/collage has several cropped other photos in separate layers. I work with the opacity settings and also use the eraser where necessary. This type of thing just takes a LOT of practice using Photoshop or other comparable programs. As stated, each cropped photo is placed on in a different layer. I select a layer at a time from the layer palette and apply the opacity settings and other levels accordingly. Hope this helps!

Thank you Gunther. I have yet to participate in other photo online contests. I always find some sort of gimmick embedded in the fine print, but I will check it out. Thanks again!
