@ahodarkar, great job there. You can always try to balance the colors on your pictures by adding a color balance layer on top of all your other layers. That will clear up some blending issues, but the rest you'll have to crop yourself.

Anyways, welcome to WPC and a very good start there mate :good:

It will minimize the prominence of the edge, but if your looking for a better solution, try feathering by 1 or 2 pixels.

Theres also the magic eraser, select the white border and start outlining the girls layer, that also should take care of the border :good:

@ ahodarkar - welcome to WPC, Az & DMC have already given the advice to sort the white border out. Good luck.

@ Az - Nice wall mate, the girl looks a little to bright (stands out to much (imo)), try and dull her a little see if looks better.

@ zj - I like the eye, but does it come under Gothic? Not 100% sure but then again, I'm no expert on Gothic, don't really know much about this topic :lol: maybe some one else can say.

Let's check some dictionary!!

gothic
- as if belonging to the Middle Ages; old-fashioned and unenlightened; "a medieval attitude toward dating"
- a style of architecture developed in northern France that spread throughout Europe between the 12th and 16th centuries; characterized by slender vertical piers and counterbalancing buttresses and by vaulting and pointed arches
- often gothic Of or relating to a style of fiction that emphasizes the grotesque, mysterious, and desolate. "gothic novels like `Frankenstein'".
- From a Renaissance perspective (originally Italian, gotico, with connotations of "rough, barbarous"), it conveyed the opposite of 'classical' or 'Roman'

hehe.. seems like gothic is a wide topic.. not just for punk goth :P
to me zj's pic looks like some of the description above.. so it's okay if you ask me :)

Agree with muerte, Gothic is originally an architectural style. Zjurina's entry fits the bill :)

@DeZal, Tell me about it, you should have seen her before I darkened her! Now I need to darken her even more :P
