Pope George?

I got a joke email about George W. Bush becoming Pope because the college of cardinals used Diebold election machines and decided to illustrate the outcome. I used the official White House picture of the President and photos of the late Pope on the web to come up with this. (A larger version is available at http://avogadro.smugmug.com/gallery/490073/1/20006937 .) If I had taken more time, I would have had some of his hair overlap the skullcap and would have softened some of the edges more. How well can you composite Pope George W?

Moved to this out of Photo-art 101, which is intended for rookies.

This is the work of someone whose skills are far beyond rookie. Cleverly done.
