That's a really cool shot. Very creative. I gotta learn how to do that!

Thanks! Here's how I did it... The hand was blurry in the original digital photo, so I copied around the hand and pasted it back on the photo. Then I enlarged the hand to make it look larger than the original (and so there would be enough to stick out from the sides of the photo), Then I magnified a great deal and used the erasre to erase around of the newly pasted hand as best I could. I went to the bottom layer (the Original) and applied the Crumble filter ( plugin, then created a new layer where I built the background, and placed it beneith the other two layers. Then I wen back and applied a blurred shadow to the "Big Hand Layer" and a Darker shadow to the "Original Layer". There's a bit more to it, but only minor stuff. =Brian=
