most perfect photo of MAD1

This is a digitally enhanced image of our family pet “Mad1” (she is crazy). The most useful thing I learnt from my digital photography course at university was how to fully use the half-shutter options to focus lock the camera – then you call out to the dog, she looks you release and then the most perfect image of Mad1 is taken. The grass was a little dead due to TOO MUCH rain so a layer of green over the image then blending it into the grass to look natural with layer transparency options. Once it looks good a copy is made of the locked background layer (original colours) and then the green grass layer (merged at this point) has become a mask layer to mask out the green looking dog. Its subtle but makes Mad1 look even more perfect.
