I know you are a pro and an instructor (I've read your books) But I just had to say this blew me away! Awesome image Jim! Cheers! #1266405

Thanks very much, Rod. I did this last night -- 3 hours of meticulously cutting around the hair at 600%, virtually pixel by pixel. I wrote about this on my blog if you're interested: http://blog.corporatefineart.com/

In 19 years of working in Photoshop, this picture was the most challenging for me.

This is fantastic. I read the blog on changing the background. You surely worked hard on it! My question is, how did you get the reflection in the water? #8622012

Thank you, Susan. The reflection was made by Flood, a Photoshop plug-in (and my favorite one) made by flamingpear.com.

It's cheap and easy to use.
