In this picture, using Photoshop CS5, I created a copy of the original photograph (the background), used the elliptical tool to draw a perfect circle over the desired section and then unchecked the visibility of the copy. This was the result:
For this technique, I dragged and dropped the plated meat picture on top of the cat. To increase the presence of the layer, I then moved the opacity dial in the layer tab up and down until I found the ideal strength. To enhance the colours and tones, I manipulated the cyan tone and blue curves in the top layer to bring out the blue ring of the plate. I’ve called this one ‘Kitty dreams’ – I think it’s pretty self explanatory.
