Arrow Repost: Baby Parts Replacement

Thanks to everyone for the comments. They were very helpful and I think that I have responded to them all.

1. The baby's head has been repositioned for a more normal appearance.

2. I replace the baby's arm.

3. I added some noise to the baby's skin as it was a bit too smooth for the grain on this pic.

4. I added some warmer tones to the tint.

5. I eliminated the vertical compression that was so apparent after Bart pointed it out.

Comments, suggestions, knives, and barbs are all welcome (How do you bring over a photo that's already here? The original is on the orig. post. Sorry!).

Looks much better, head of the little girl in a more natural looking position.

One very minor quibble. The new arm on the girl is a little hard on the outer edge around her elbow (above and below), also her hand is little too sharply focused when compared to the man's hand below. A tiny amount of blurring should take care of it.

But you have to really be nitpicking to see this, most "normal" viewers probably wouldn't notice it.

Thumbs down Thanks Gary, good point

I wasn't sure if the hand was blended well enough or if it was just because I knew it was there. See new attachment. I sent the little girl a preview yesterday and she was thrilled. She didn't have any photos of her with her father except for her wedding day. Feels good.

That works better for me.

Yeah, its nice when you can give someone something they otherwise wouldn't have.

I did a similar thing for my wife a bit back. Suprisingly she didn't have a picture of her Mom and Dad together (her Dad's no longer with us), so I combined a couple of pictures, and all the family wanted copies of the result. As you said, makes you feel good.
