Not sure what kind of a bird this is, maybe cormorant? Anyway, I've always loved ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' roz's pelican images where she duplicates one pelican like this
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/644201.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/644201.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
This image is my inspiration, although I only added one duplicate bird. Maybe I'll try a version with more...
Copy bird from other image and paste into this image, clean up edges
Color Efex Pro tonal contrast filter
Adjust Hue/Saturation
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' pixelpig's cool frame layer in overlay mode
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/63218/120/781392.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/63218/120/781392.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Love the watery greens in this--lovely w/that frame. Well done (though the original is also lovely). I'm glad you post your steps, it makes interesting reading.
