Did everything by hand myself... but I can mask fairly quickly, expecially when the object has smooth lines. I do use a stylus as well.

I resize the image at least 200% and then use the pen tool, once I finish, I create a mask from the working path that I created and use the "feader" (don't remember the correct spelling of that) of 1 or 2 pixels to soften the edge, now I remove or hide the background.

And then I resize again down

masking can never be too complicated

ok, here we go. This is how I like to create masks. I find it quite effective and also quite flexible. First you increase the image by 200% then create a path. Make the selection and go to quick mask mode. Once there I blur the mask. How much depends on the size of the image. Once it has been blurred I go to curves and adjust the contrast until the mask, visually, cuts into the image by about a pixel. Then I switch back to selection mode and apply the mask. Done. Nice and neat. Probably a bit over complicated but I've been using it for a while and it's always worked fantastically for me.

Normally, I avoid masks until the very end when I have to detail the finest points, and then use the layer mask. For most of the extractions, I use the selection tools and the eraser. Also, I use a Wacom.

Great job to all

This is my first contests, hope everyone is having fun with the challenge. I had a time with the windows, trying to make them look as real as possible and still capturing the items behind them. Allen
