I love your idea here, and your woofer looks a delightful one too Smile

A couple of small thoughts for next time you do something like this ...

Once you've done the cut-out of the dog, think about feathering the edges by one or two pixels - that will help the selection blend in more with your background (which is quite soft in itself, due to the mist).

The other thing is to think objectively about the differences in colour and light (direction, intensity etc) between your base scene and what you're adding into it - here, they don't quite match so the dog stands out much more than she really should. I obviously don't know what software you use, but if you're able to do cut-out selections then you should be well able to alter the colour / vibrancy / saturation of the dog herself to integrate her into the scene more.

Thank you TanyaH , I appreciate you letting me know how to do this. I understand what you are saying and it is great advice that I will work on learning how to do this. Smile
