The Great Escape
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
The Great Escape
The Great Escape
All photos of mine except for the picture frame. One photo of a wallpaper pattern from a recent hotel stay and 12 butterfly photos from various visits to the b'fly garden. Cut out b'flies & combined all elements, including shadows, using layers (20 of them!) in PSP 9. These butterflies have had enough of being put on display and are making a break for freedom:-)

Thanks so much for all your fantastic commnets, everyone! I was very pleased with the result of this. I started out with one idea, then it changed as I started out and as I kept going, it just kind of lead me along:-) It DID take an incredible amount of time over 4 days... mostly nights when everyone else in the house was in bed!
