Very nice work, Sandra, I'm sure she'll love it. the one suggestion I've got is to maybe lighten up the middle one's face a bit?

I agree with David about adding more light to your mom's face - maybe a duplicated layer set to Screen mode with a layer mask to add light only where you want it. You got the light on her shoulder coming from the right direction, and just looking at it -- I would have thought they were photographed together. BTW, she has beautiful hair.

Thanks David and CJ I will add more light to her face, I think I went from one extreme to another. My first photo had too much light on her face and the other had too little. Oh well we learn by trying these things.

Thanks CJ I'm happy with the way mum fitted in the middle but I was lucky I had an easy photo of the other two sisters to work with.

BTW when she sees the photo she's going to say "is my hair that white?" it is but she always thinks it's darker.

Hi Sandra great job on the insertion. I agree with the rest about the faces.

I did this quick. I used the magnetic lasso on each face and adjusted it in curves. At the end I did a curves adjustment on all.

I also tried the dodge tool but the results looked fake.

This thread kept slipping by me. She's gonna be one happy lady when she sees the results. I'm sure you have the face lightened a bit by now, and it looks great. Nice job!

Yes I have lightened the face and my brother is getting the photo put onto a cake for her so when we pick it up I'll take a photo of it to show you all how it turned out.

as promised here's a photo of the christmas cake with the photo on it. My brother is giving it to her today, I'll be very interested to see her reaction. I may take the camera but as it's going to be at a club I don't know if I want to carry it around with me all day, knowing how forgetful I can be I'll lose it. lol
