2nd attempt

Ok, here we go again. Under 100K jpg file. Lets see if it works this time. Thanks for all the input and ideas on getting this posted. If all else fails, I'll either post the URL or email it to Doug.

Looks pretty good to me. Very natural and no obvious matte hanging out. Very good work. Perhaps increase the saturation a little but I'm no expert. Tom

Thumbs down You did it!!

Donald,
I knew we'd get you up and running. Actually you did it yourself. The photo looks great. She seems to fit right into the scene. I wouldn't worry about the coloring but I am not photographer either. I think you did a great job.
DJ

Donald,

Looks great to me. Appears that you're going to be another addition to our growing population of accomplished artists.

Hi Donald,

I'm pretty new here myself and still have lots to learn. I think you did a good job on this one - you combined the two images seamlessly. I see what you mean about the color shift and if it were me, I'd probably try to correct it. (But I'm a bit of a perfectionist. ) Looks like too much red or magenta, but I'm not sure.

One other thing that looks a little "off" to me is that Kathy looks a washed out when compared to the building behind her. If you still have the layers to work on, I'd make her layer active and use levels to increase the contrast. (I'm assuming you know that technique. Let us know if you don't.) That should help make the colors look more saturated as well.

Jeanie

Jeanie,

Thanks for the comments. I kind of second most of what you said pertaining to the image. The original image is a wee bit better... The posted one last some information in decreasing its size/resolution. But you are correct in the magenta/red cast. I'm probably going to rescan the negatives and redo the final image.
I also lost the *.psd files when I reformatted not long ago. My archiveal CD collection is starting to pile up too much, and getting harder and harder to find what I want, even though I KNOW I have it somewhere. Kind of like a looney squirle who knows he's burried a winter stash of nuts somewhere, but just can't quite recall where he buried them all at.... I know, post-it notes

Cheers!
Donald
