Pretty good lookin extraction to me!

changed the background, gave her a bit of a smile and made her eyes bluer.

I love Halloween!
I cheated and used color range to remove most of the green and then used the color replacement tool to turn the remaining green to her hair color...
Pasted her in the background, matched color, but turned it down a bit... then used lighting effects. Jamie lee is behind her somewhere!

This was a good exercise. Hard to get the green cast off. Made a mask from the red channel. Refined it by using levels. Tried to use hue sat to lessen it. Still remained. So I decided a greenish background would be a good choice.

Great job everyone. Especially like the Halloween poster!

Ciao Vicki

Seems to only make sense Vicki. Why fight it? I think it's something you have to be careful with when using Chromakey backgrounds, especially if you place the subject to close to it. The way the subject is lit might also add to the problem.

Hi Everyone.

The whole point of using a ChromaGreen background is to make extraction easy. Unfortunately the model has stood too close to the background and the Green has coloured her hair.

I made a mask from the red channel
removed the green hair like Gary did.
New background from clouds and noise
Tinted and darkened her tee shirt
Cleaned her skin a little
Whitened the eyes and changed the catch light
Changed the chain to gold
Changed the perspective a little
Added a vignette

A very pretty young lady

Couldn't think of anything else. Still needed a play break from work.
