Turtle Crossing 2012

Turtle Crossing 2012

The background photo is a picture of a pond taken on our walk around the lake.
The snapping turtle was sitting at our deck. Our dog was barking frantically, not knowing what this was.
I extracted the turtle from the backyard photo and put him or her in the pond where it belongs.


    So cute and clever. I had to take a look when I saw the thumbnail on the forum page. I like the way you used the sign post for your turtle crossing.
    What a beautiful background photo and fantastic extraction! Great page!
    Wow - beautiful photos and wonderful extraction and blending. I really like how you put this whole page together. Great layout! :)
    What a lovely setting! I like how you used the sign too. Nicely done!
    Great extraction - any tips ?

    What a lovely pond - just perfect for the turtle :)
    I use the lasso tool to isolate the image and get rid of the background. Then I use the eraser ,set the brush to round brush, opacity 100% and normal. and start erasing,
    as I get closer to the image I am extracting I reduce the size of the brush to keep the edge of the image as crisp as possible. I then add a background shadow to give the image depth. After I put the image on the background I clean up the image if I see any outlines that should not be on my layout using a very small brush.
    I hope this helps.
    Thank you for looking.
