pixel perfect: before and after

Wow!  This is the most complicated edit I've EVER done!  I never would've even attempted it, had Ashley at Ramblings and Photos not posted THIS tutorial!  It took a few tries, but I was able to remove the legs & hand from my photo and it's now one of my favorites!!!  You've got to check her post out!!!!  And the rest of her blog, if you've never before (but let's face it.....I'll bet almost all of you have been a follower of her for a while!)

I'm linking to Pixel Perfect today:




So, without further ado, here's my before, SOOC:

15-85mm (@42mm), f/5, 1/80, ISO 100

And here's my fantastic after!!!
I cropped it a bit, as the trees on the far Right of the photo didn't match well with the ones on the left that I'd dragged over & right above her head the trees matching looked funny.  Remember, it was my first time.  I also used Amy McMaster's Free Berries n Cream action.  Honestly...if I can do it....so can you!

THANK YOU ASHLEY!!!
I think you are more amazing every day!

Beautifully done! Not only did you do a great job with the cloning, you brought out amazing coloring and added a lot of depth to the photo.

So looking at this I'm guessing you are using photoshop correct? If so which one?
