Nice photos, Neve.

Art History, Texture (High-pass) sharpening, Lighting effects and some tweaking....

Lovely result Byro and well done JC. I got myself into trouble in Painter. Started out okay cloning with - Oils/Fine Camel 10 (all over tigers). Then some Gouache (not cloned. picked white) to add back the whiskers and other parts of the fur.

Oils/Thick Oil Bristle 10 on the poles and decking. Gouache again for the log under the decking (on a layer which I later lost)??? Then decided to try out the Hose feature (i.e. all the leaves at the front). Added a shadow to them.

Then trouble - every time I go into any of the textures - I suddenly lose the ability to clone (ie. transparency doesn't work anymore). So frustrating and I've no idea how to get back to it.

Anyway, finally finished off in PSP, smudging the bg. I prefer a texture added but posting here with the texture you cannot "see" what has been done as per the description.

In PS7 duped the BG and did a Gaussian blur of 25 or so on the new layer. Added a mask and painted the tigers and warf back in. Saved and opened in PSP9. Ran one step photo fix and a watercolor script. Saved and opened in PS7. Cloned out some of the brush strokes I didn't like and added a texture layer. Resized and saved.

LQQKER -- Love it!

I liked the stone and wood, so kept them in the crop. Some sharpening/aniso diffusion plus a Find Edges layer with lighting effect to add texture. I love tigers, and they always remind me of copper which I also love, so I surrounded them with a bit of hammered copper.
