Challenge has finished
Sometimes, the world just isn't put together right. Fortunately, photographers can fix it in post. Use any compositing technique to create a scene that doesn't exist in reality, but should. Combine two or more elements from your own original photographs into a single coherent scene, and do it so well that we can't even tell that you did it. Remember the old phrase, "a doctored photograph"? Well, now you're the doctor. Tell us the name of the app or program you used to achieve your effect.

Cookie at Animal Kingdom

24th place (joint)
Started out with a rather dull photo of a lagoon at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Using PS Elements 9.0 I copied a photo of Cookie, one of our Arabians, and placed her on the beach. I then copied another and flipped it to simulate the reflection. I finally cloned out a couple of distracting elements and I was finished.
