    I'm just put this photo together, and am planning on blowing it up (20x30) and giving it to a friend for his birthday. I just wanted to get you guy's opinions first and be positive there were no visible lines because of the editing them together. I figure several new sets of eyes can't hurt (especially since its 2 in the morning)

    Really nice! I don't see any lines, but it's 4am my time. Question for you, what do you use to crop out the area from your photos? I've used the lasso tool and have had less than desirable results. Do you use a mask?

    Yeah, that was my first attempts to, but that didn't work at all. What I finally did was this.

    I started out with 4 photos and chose one of them to be the background layer (in this case the one with him in the water, because I thought it would be the hardest to transfer to a different image). For the other three I took the square tool and drew a square around the person. I copied the square and pasted it into a new layer on the background image. Once pasted, it was pretty easy to line up using the arrows for real small adjustments and zomming in. Just make sure you get some good lines in the box.

    There were a couple times when the box overlapped with the person, in these cases i just used the eraser to get rid of part of the box.

    Does that all make sense?

    very nice!! i dont see any flaws :) of course it MIGHT be easier to spot with a large print. you'll see, but even if you do, it's still a great shot, concept and job :)

    You have very clean extractions. I totally do not understand your method.

    Before you present it to your friend, you might consider adding individual shadows. But, he'll be so impressed with your rendering that probably he will not notice the abscence of shadows.
