frank w. degenhardt level-classic 10/19/2010 6:07:28 PM

Mary Beth- When someone tells me they took several or more pictures and combined them, the one thing that I look for and am critical about is the fact that the picture looks natural, that nothing stands out as not belonging, that the look has that taken right from the camera look to it. Now I know these cats and dogs, the fish, and the bird really wer'nt in that boat and house but your amazing talent made it look as it they did. That is some astonishing work my friend. Love the look, the colors, and I found in reading your description of how you did all this, I got a laugh from your humor. Your gift shines bright my friend. Extraordinary accomplishment.
Have a wonderful day. #8984322

Just having fun.

Started with the house. Added the lake. Added the boat. Added the cats. Put the bird on the cat's head. He didn't like it. Added the dogs and cats to "animal" house. Asked them to pose. They weren't thrilled. Added textures and layers. Enhanced sky. Placed the fish in water. He loved it. Added reflection. Off they go. Bon Voyage.
