Anyone want to practice their masking skills?

I took this picture of my granddaughter yesterday just before she got her first haircut. I guess this is what you get when you go down a plastic slide with nylon pants. Below is the link to the high resolution version from my Nikon D80.

Every so often you get lucky. I tell my kids "if you can't take a good picture, take lots of pictures. I can make a good picture." but this one was just sitting there.

smak - that's really good. how did you do it?

I copied the green channel, raised contrast with levels (tried High Pass filter; didn't help).
Mostly played around with Levels until the wisps of hair started to disappear. That's why the mask is so gray.

I'm packing my grandkids in the car(with plastic pants) and heading for the nearest Macca's.
Great shot, enter it in some type of competition.

But your right Pixelzombie, definitely a challange.
