Two Leopards

Not difficult to do. I selected the leopards and made multiple copies. The leopard pattern interested me.

Uh, oh! Similar to Phil's. Selected leopards, copies to transform. Perked them up with h/s and b/c.

That black frame with a touch of orange works really well with your picture.

Hide in the Grass

Spectacular Tiger photo, Neve!

Nice texture, Xran, but the blue halo around your tiger selection needs to be reduced so that the edges are cleaner.

PhotoShop CS

I didn't want to manipulate these guys too much. I only added a slight "big fur" texture (which I faded a lot after applying). I made a layer for just the eyes and sharpened them a little. I added the background and made a copy of some palmetto fronds that were in the forground, duplicated and distorted them. Desaturated the background bayhead slightly with a GBlur.

Sometimes we treat effects and art filters like fonts. We think the more fonts we use in a document the more creative we appear. Sometimes a good photo can be enhanced but too much "art" can spoil the picture.

Swampy's Rendering

Hey I like that putting the grass in the foreground added some excitment and made it more interesting. Like you said; just because you can mess with something doesn't mean it should be done.
