Thanks Clive. Thanks fossiler. Iíve just checked out your galleries and youíve got some amazing work.
When you start out experimenting with these things, itís good to know that someone thinks youíre getting it right.

Very well manipulated and quite an eye-catching image. One minor niggle is that maybe the lighting on your lying down body does'nt quite stack up with the rest of the image. Maybe a yellowish cast on the left side of the body to suggest light from the bedside lamps? Just niggling really.

Thanks for your comments Dave.
I hadnít notice it. My technique in PS is, at present, quite basic, Iím a new kid on the block and Iím teaching myself. I hope to learn a few more buttons very soon!
Iíd love to have the skill that you have got Ė what an imagination!

I agree with Dave. Also watch your selection paths. Keep them clean and tight in certain curcumstances. The top edge of the lower right woman doesn't look real. If you tighten that kind of stuff up (along with what DaveU was suggesting) you'll have a better effect. Great idea though.
Cheers, Martin

A diificult effect to acheive, and I think you've done it superbly.
I assume you used the same lighting and exposures for the two merged shots, so the comments about the foreground figure could have more to do with the flash/lighting you used than your PS skills. You can of course tone it down in PS if you feel like it.

I like the shot very much.
