While gardening has been a lifetime deep passion of mine, I have not been able to grow a money tree. 😉

Very clever Rafael.  That's some latterl thinking right there.  The oerspective is perfect, and I like that you have a nice soft shadow cast on the lady's forehead.   There's a tiny bit of pink that has bled outside the pig.  Did you blur a selection to make that happen.  It happens with Gaussian blur, but any of the lens blurs will prevent tthe blur creeping outside the selected area.

Thank you for the kind words, Trevor, much appreciated. I used the Free Transform Warp tool to make the perspective look reasonable and to improve the fit around her head. I had to move the pig's eyes to fit the new perspective and cloned the pig's right eye (left on the image) from the left eye, as the original had an oval shape because of the initial perspective. I made the shadow from the layer effects drop shadow, masking out the areas where there shouldn't be a shadow and then blurred it with Gaussian blur. I am not sure if the bit of pink you mention is the one on the pig's back? I believe that's part of its tail, it's in the original image. If that is not what you meant, then I believe the Gaussian blurring may have made the pink bleed outside the selection, as you mention. I am aware of ways to prevent this but I did not think of doing it that way this time.

So it was definitely your delicate colour matching of headgear and other gear, Rafael.

This is my brother Geoff who is a year younger than me.

And my still younger brother Glyn:

I wish I had a picture of me with the pigs, but alas, that is not to be. So, in the interest of fair play, that's me on the tractor, and brothers Glyn and Geoff on the trailer.

Nice family photos Trevor, and I like the way you've sneaked this week's pig into each of them 🙂

I started on this as soon as I saw the slot, before anyone had posted back; and returned just now, to a few surprises.
