Well I have never heard a fisherman say "It looks bigger/better in real life" !!!!! just kidding man!

Hope you dont mind I indulged in Syd's "Challenge" of making the little fella look like he was diving out of the lake....... just a quick and dirty edit..

Welcome...

Nice edit Dom. Just what I had in mind.

If you're bored have a rethink on LB's challenge. I've googled Edingburgh to the limits and I don't think so . . . It's driving me to bananas!

Hi Guys,

Quite a simple one...

First cut out the hand with the magic wand and the delete key...

Then, a little bit of cloning to make the fish complete where the hand was holding it there was a little missing...

Finally, I used the lasso tool and cut out a selection around the fish - then zoomed in and tidied it up with the add/delete options of the lasso. Then a simple motion blur filter and selected the angle at about 20o (I think) to make the path look like the fish was jumping out of the water...
