Apologies to those who question the US's role in world affairs. I saw this replica of the freedom bell here in Grand Prairie, Texas and created this. Comments?

Here's the original. Masked in Corel PhotoPaint 12 and added to another shot of a US flag.

Oh my gosh... I'm not the only person in the world using Corel PhotoPaint 12.... I started at ver 3. I think ver 1 was a box of crayons and a straight stick.

Anyhow... Great mask job considering the like colors in the background.

Yeah, I've been a user for years as well. Have tried Elements 1, 2 and 3, but just find Corel PhotoPaint more intuitive. Works for me.

Nice job with the combo Walter. Looks like someone isn't interested in letting freedom ring in the middle of the night though.:G Have you tried to clone out the chains? I like the first on best, the last one has the floating look to it with no ground.

I like the last one better Walter..Kind of ironic though, standing for freedom under lock and chain..

I also used Photopaint for years, but recently changed to CS2. I still miss some of the things that made photopaint so good, but am slowly getting used to photoshop. It does have some very nice points too. Sure wish I could combine what I like about both programs..

Great composite. I like the final version without the chains - it has a nice clean look. I must admit, however, that there is some irony in the locked and chained version. Really good work.

Great work, chains gone is a big plus. Good concept/idea as well.
