As some people seem to like the second shot better I tried to tidy it up a bit. Mainly to hide the join between the shelf and the back of the unit. I'm not very good with photoshop so i couldn't do much else to it. :-)

Sorry to keep sticking photos in here but does anyone like this. I'm experimenting with the mystery of photoshop layers and trying to decide if it's worth the effort. :-)

It will be. Sit down with it for a couple of hours pressing everything and anything. That's how I learned how to do stuff. Every time you try one thing you will learn about another.

Still like the first one best, but Ferny is right on target about playing with anything and everything in Photoshop. I'm still doing this after having used it for a number of years, still learning new methods.

When you play with effects, you'll find yourself wowed by them at first, but after a while, you'll use them only as subtle augmentation for your pictures. For instance, I've never before played seriously with Diffuse Glow, mostly because it seemed far too extreme, but I've discovered lately how to properly use it, which sort of photos are enhanced by it, and how much of it to use. It's not something I'm likely to use often, but by playing hard with it, what it can accomplish will stay in my memory, and when a photo shows up screaming for it, I'll know.

So play like crazy just as Ferny suggests.

But make sure you don't press the red button.
I hope I wasn't to late in telling you that.
