A Good Hand

By sooty 36  
just messing around with the camera taking some shots indoors. Coupled with an idea from Dawn, this was the end result. Something different from me. But a change is as good as a rest. I値l explain how this was done another time, but some of you may even know how this was done. What I will say, is that this was made up of two images, but only one from the camera lol.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks everyone. It was quite easy to do really and I cheated somewhat lol.
The shot is made up of two pics. One from the camera and the other from another image.

It started off with me just messing around with putting something together for last months competition here on EPZ. The shot from the camera was of the cones and playing cards against a white background, then cleaned up in photoshop etc. Now for the fun and cheating bit lol.
After doing some work on the shot, I then left the computer for a while to have a break. Have you guessed yet? lol
The water and fish, believe it or not are my screen saver, that kicked in while I was away from the comp`. Dawn and I was so impressed with the effect that we decided to keep it. It was just a question of hitting the `print screen` key on the keyboard and pasting that into a new layer in photoshop. Then cropping and some more cleaning up etc and that was the end product.
So it was a case of something happening a little by accident and cheating really lol.
But it was something different!!!

My screen images work but the screen savers is separate: however this is a fortunate occurence for you and very intriguing: Good title.Nice shot, it really worked.
