Really well put together and excellent components, but I think I'd have preferred her to have been diffused and blended more into the background. Her face is very bright and looks harsh compared with the rest of the image. I know she's the main component of the image, but just a bit too prominent for me. Hey, not that I could do it or anything. Wink

Thanks all. Chris you're right, the edge may be too sharp. It was intentional to stand out, but having done another version I do prefer a slightly softer edge, But I do still want the lift in tone. I've added a couple more versions 1, 3 or 4 folks?

Wish I could do something like this but layers and masks have me beatenSad........I think I tend to agree with Chris's comment although I understand your intention, but for me V 4 is the I vote for, Pete.
Fine piece of composite imagery.

Superb images here Pete. My own personal preference is for V1, although the sepia version comes a close second!

Nicely put together Pete,I am with Chris ( Slowsong) on the sharpness/brightness of the face though.
I do like the colours in V1 but prefer the texures in V3 ( except for the very bright part on her left cheek).
Her expression does fit the composite very well.

I like the concept Pete and how you have put this together - V1 for me but like V4 too.

Nicely done Pete. Nice to see the originals too. I see the benefits of the softer version (3) but I prefer the slight detatchment of the model in V1. It gives her more of an air of loss or sorrow as if shes trying to turn away from whats in the bg, if that makes sense Smile
