Wow, what can I say, thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday. I know it doesn't take long to write a quick message but you went to the trouble of doing so. 
In return, have a sneak peek of a picture I took a few weeks ago....:)

playing with composites today.....as you do on a Sunday morning..!
Following the tutorials from +Calvin Hollywood on Kelby Training (Well worth subscribing btw...) and this was an image I took earlier in the year of Abi against a plain backdrop. The wall was one I took years ago and the graffiti is a stock image, not mine. 
I found the hardest part is getting the lighting correct. As none of these images was taken with compositing in mind (working with what I have atm), I spent an age getting the background to look right. 
So, it may not be a portfolio standard image, but I kind of like it.

Thanks

I'm a novice in this space as well but the model has been extracted very well, with great detail in the hair etc.

Hi James,  Thanks for the comments and the add. quite a bit of retouching went on here. I'm trying to continually improve on my Photoshop skills and this was a bit of an experiment. Abi didn't really need this much of a makeover....:)

Wow, just realised I haven't really been on Google for ages.
Well, for those that know me, a little of what I've been up to.

Got loads of images to post so I'll get them uploaded over the next few days.

Thanks

Just wanted to share this before and after of Scarlett I took a few months ago.
Have been testing new PS techniques and found a few new ways to do things that I like. Any feedback would be appreciated...:)

Thanks

Taken last night at Brodsworth Hall, near Doncaster UK. They light up the entire garden for just a couple of weeks a year and last night promised to be the only dry night before it ended. Oh how wrong could I be....it poured. So much so, my camera was drenched (not to mention the wife & daughter..!) Still, got some great shots, this being one of my fave's as it's just so 'different'. Looks odd, the doorway in the sky; however its a sunken garden and looked kinda cool...:) 

Thanks for looking...
