I recently came across some wild roos that have become used to being fed by visitors so I thought I'd take a shot. As I knelt down and focused this female hopped up to get what she thought was a free hand-out only to discover that I had nothing
She did pose nicely.

Great shot and well presented. It certainly captured my attention. How do you achieve this type of presentation and with what software? Any tips?

regards

Thank you all for the kind words.

roncur: The frame was done in Paint Shop Pro.
Have your picture open in PSP and make a copy.
Frame the copy then go to the original and select and copy the parts that need to be "on top" of the frame (my hand and the roo's ear in this example) and copy into the framed copy.
Just requires a bit of patience.

The first one of these I did was a candid shot of my wife walking on a jetty. I framed it in such a way that she looks like she is coming out of the frame.
Give it a try, with the right photo it can be very effective.

Cheers
John.
