Essential On Black to get the 3D effect.
She was wearing a rather bright blue shirt, and I always regretted the distraction that caused. At last I have tried to cut the hands out. Any one know of a better (and maybe easier) implementation for doing this than PS Elements?
Part of the original was the handle of the stick she was clutching. Is that clear enough in the cut-out? I've added a cut-out omitting the stick, but don't think I like it as much.
This is the original photo including the blue shirt -- www.flickr.com/photos/algo/41942696/in/set-350266/
She has since died, and I wish I had taken plenty more photos of her.
