All I see is a PhotoSig logo. Are you sure you posted the correct link?

Thanks, Jeanie

For whatever reason, if you take the 1 out and just use www, a photo appears. Try that.

Paldo,

Someone took a photo and dropped out the background and used a composited one, like you said, and then painted the blanket over the woman. Looks like some of the bg elements might be photograph, some painted.

Nice idea, and fair result, except that the woman sticks out somewhat because of how she is dressed and her skin looks a bit too red and blotchy.

Okay - Now that you changed the URL I can see his discription. He did pretty much what I said although the throw was not painted on but made to look more artsy after the fact, sounds like that was the case with the whole background. I would like to see this without the jeans and a more natural color to her skin.
A very nice composition.

I don't know what his trick is but all his portrait seems to look like a painting instead of a photos... maybe someone here know how to achieve such tricks..

That last one you posted looked to be a straight photography shoot. He describes there how he created the background. I don't think he did anything to modify it artisticly. Why don't you email him and ask him how he does his work?

whta was done ?

the second one is just a straight shoot photo
the first one, selected the girl put her own her own layer and then did an art effect to everything dragging the girl back into place, that combined the photo with art effect

I see something different. I think both are pure photos with blending/smoothing of skin. What threw me in the first one is the green door -- I believe that's a painted part of the studio backdrop...

(I could be wrong)
