It took me a class to get a clue about Photoshop so I'm really impressed that you did that from a book!

I agree with Ja about the floor... it's a too sharp contrast from the clouds.  But your other change is very well done.

The one thing I learned about Photoshop is that it's best used with more practice and then more practice!  Have fun and the more you play with it, the better it works.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

Photoshop is addictive!  Congratulations on your first attempt!  As you go, you learn things often by accident...just roll with it!  I think the more you get brave and try different things, the more at ease with it you become.
Have fun!!!

I agree with removing all the floor. Everything looks really good. Ain't it fun? You might want to try feathering the edge where you cut out the background. 3-5 px to start.

Very fun!!  I love that you removed the background and I noticed that other little change, too! Wink

Are you addicted now?  I'm a longtime addict of Photoshop.  We just installed Photoshop CS4 -- wahoo!

Do more of what makes you happy.

Good job, especially for your first try! 

I agree about taking out the floor completely.  I'm wondering about taking out the folding chair, too. Altho, I don't know, your hubby might look odd without it.

If you do go back and tweak things, your hubby left cheek looks like it could be smoothed out a bit.  I'm nit-picking with that comment, though.

Your tweak of the shirt is really nicely done!  I never would have noticed it if no one had said anything. 

I think you are on your way to **Mad Photoshop Skillz!!**

You did a great job! And this comes from a person who has used photoshop for over ten years. This is a nice photo and I love what you've done so far.

I agree with the others to take out the flooring. Also, one little trick you can do to make it look more natural around the edges: zoom in close on the edges and blend a tiny bit with the blur tool, but use a low strength like 14% and a small/medium brush size. By blending just a little around the edges it will look less like the scenery was photoshopped in.

Nice work!

Great job! I wish I knew how to do this. I love how you fixed the gap in your blouse!
I love all the suggestions everyone has made.

So I had to look for quite a while before I noticed the "little change" (I also am lousy @ those what's-different-about-this-picture puzzles hehe) You did a great job! I have wanted to try photoshop but haven't had the guts to yet. Beautiful family! Looks like you have your hands full! Smiley
