    I wish number 1 was a little bit darker, but other than that #1 is my favorite. I like the mirror idea alot.

    Wow, this looks really freaky upside-down!

    There's a lot of clarity in the mirror... it's like looking at a 2 headed creature.

    I didnt catch the line in the first one. I originally liked number 2, because of the contrast, but I felt that the cut out is too noticeable.

    I wish I knew how to make the background darker but keep her not so cut out looking? Anyone want to share? on maybe how they would do it?

    From the second I looked at these I thought they were fake, after looking for a good 5 minutes I'd say without a doubt this is all post. If somehow I am wrong, I'd be very surprised.

    Her neck, arm, and mouth are all at the wrong angle. Not to mention the reflection would look completely different. Plus it appears you cut her out, and a bit of a hack job at that :( since you cut it with either the pen tool or brush tool there are no strands hanging naturally.

    Was I right? Or is it just 12:30 am and I'm somehow going crazy?

    No they are not fake.

    She IS on a mirror, I'll post the original.

    What other tool is there to use, how else would I cut her out? I want to know so I can try! lol

    I don't like that her top blends in with the background, it is difficult to tell that she is laying down.

    Now that it isn't late at night I can see how you shot it :3 I swear last night it looked so fake xD

    There are a lot of techniques for cutting out hair, I like to chop it off how you did, but then go back and make new hair. This way I can control exactly how it looks (using a wacom pen and the clone stamp tool)
