Thanks Joanna. The original background wasn't that nice. Thanks to Photoshop - anything is possible :)

It was a photography class field trip where I get to shoot a live model... I was first nervous, but I got use to it after awhile with the help from serveral experienced and instructors photographers. #3106537
