PS: the link you posted is great. It's a keeper. Wait till the next contest that uses a shadow comes along -pow!- I won't be using anymore guessing games.

Re: June 09 Contest Discussion Thread

Kudos to those of you that braved the dreaded isolation contest! Are you guys seeing feathers in your dreams? I'm hoping you learned some useful tips to make this process easier.

And the winner is....

Mayberry!

Re: June 09 Contest Discussion Thread

Thank you so very much for all your lovely comments, I am so very excited to learn I was placed first. thank you for all who voted for me. I really feel humbled, with so many excellent entries and with great appreciation of all the hours that were put in to this project by everyone, it really was a mammoth task, but also a good learning experience. Sorry it has taken me a while to respond but I have been camping.

Thank you Lonnie for taking the time to give us all your excellent tips, they were extremely helpful, along with the Russell Brown tutorial 'advanced masking techniques for really bad hair days' and free download of Dave Nagel hair brushes, which inspired me to make my own brush for the fluff at the bottom of the feathers.

The shadow was created by tracing the original faint shadow on a new layer behind the subject with filter/gaussian blur with the opacity at 35%, then painting on a new layer with a soft brush with a opacity of 20% using the filter/gaussian blur until it looked okay, hope that makes sense.

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
