This was a HARD choice; emotionally I have a favorite. But looking at technique and difficulty of execution made me make a different choice than I might have originally made.

That said, all three of these are beautiful.

Ok, I lost some time understanding why Hera's Vacation (great one!) wasn't there. I finally carefully re-read the other thread and got it. :)
Voted and made a tie...

Ha! I KNEW Forever was Jemma's- what filters did you use? It's awesome. Photoshop, right?

Congratulations, Megan and Jemma!

Heh, looks like I'm the only one who voted for Family In Blue. I liked it.

I liked Family in Blue, and my heart belonged to the soft and beautiful washes of Forever, but I wound up voting for Agathon Family because of the technical difficulty involved, to do the crops and the color shading in between. The seamless blend between Helo's back and the crop of Hera is something I can't yet do, but hope to.

I don't know how she did it, but with the program I use similar results can be achieved with the transparency effect. Also I have an option that lets me soften the edges of any given photo, that makes blending A LOT easier!

What program are you using? I keep feinting at GIMP and getting frustrated and going back to iView.

MS Digital Image Pro 10. My dad loves it, so he has it installed on all the computers he buys - which I then inherit. ;)

*squees* It's kinda sad that such a little thing can make me so happy but I've never even placed before. Thanks for my award banner!!! I LOVES it :D !

I LOVED all of the entries. They were all wonderful and showed off what I love the most about this perfect little family.

Jemma - the texture you used was to DIE for. Really, really gorgeous.

Rose - Yours was just adorable. How could you not love something Hera created?!

MDJ - The pics you used for the banner are some of my FAVORITE Agathon pics. Especially that Hera one. SO frakking cute!!!

The blending...After trying SO many times to blend and utterly failing, I found the lasso tool on Photoshop. How much do I LOVE that thing?! It allows you to remove the part of the pic you want, leaving the edges slightly transparent so they fade a lot better. Most of the time, you still have to do some major tweaking but it's SO much easier than just trying to blend two pics on your own. Alas, I'm still total crap at adding text.
