Celebration of Life

A dear 89 year old friend passed away just before Christmas. Her husband asked me if I could prepare a photo of her for the celebration of her life this weekend. As you can see, first I had to select just Mickey. Then I wanted to add a complimentary background . In the first version I was not happy because her hair looked too phoney. You tube has everything. I watched a few videos on how to separate the subject from the background in Photoshop. Only took me 4 hours! Now I have the skill. Hope I can remember the next time I need to do something like this.
