Yay - happy with the ribbon; especially in the face of such competition. I really am a complete Photoshop novice. This is my 3rd composite ever I think and I can barely find my way around layers.

Thanks to Bear for putting the poem and line my way.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

Ah, OK (I'm a bit late here). I just photographed a real-life (or death) skull I have laying around the house. I used to use it for teaching. Just a case of painting the layer through then and a bit of 'liquefy' to get it to look right.

This has to do well Paul, its a gruesomely good shot, and the PP is perfect, it still has a very real quality and its not cartoonish like a lot of the photos in this one, excellent stuff.
