Hey Ronny,
Thanks for the feedback, my friend!

I was going to make the comment about the lack of a shadow on the wagon wheel one. You can do that in Photoshop, I think there's a way to do it that's quite elegant but that I haven't explored (think I've seen articles about doing it). The old way of doing it is to make a second layer of the girl behind the first, change her outline to dark grey, put it off center to her, then make that layer to colorize or something like that (not on a computer with photoshop on it at the moment and don't quite remember all of the directions). I had thought when I first saw the picture that I'd give it a try but got distracted by a car show and some birds this weekend.

OK, guys. I gave it a try.
Let me know if this works OK.
Thanks.

Looking better. You could probably off-set the shadow a bit more, perhaps feather the edges so they don't look quite so sharp (or add a layer style to do the same thing, I think there's a way to do it. But these are quibbling things, adding the shadow does make it look more natural now.

OK, Harriet.
I'm grateful for your suggestions!
Does this one look any better to you?
I tried to get the elongation of the shadows to match and also removed a shadow I didn't like from the top right of the wheel, it didn't seem to add anything IMHO...
Trying to mach the color of the shadow was a bit tricky but, I think I got pretty close.

I like that one a lot - the shadow looks far more natural now. Also like how you took out the extra shadow above the wagon wheel - it looks very natural also. I'd be really, really happy if that were mine! Anyone else see something?

As I said before GW, I am in awe of what you have done here! That latest revision looks so natural, It's hard to believe she wasn't standing in front of a wall with her hand resting on an old wagon wheel. Looks like you're well on your way to launching your second career.
