Diamond Encrusted Mushroom and a Frosty Stump

Diamond Encrusted Mushroom and a Frosty Stump
I'm going to tell you right now, this is a photoshopped image! :D The mushroom you see was laying in a bunch of grass and weeds, and I was only just able to get a picture without leaves obscurring the mushroom. I thought it was so beautiful though, I tried to think how I could share it. Then I remembered that I'd taken some pictures of a very cool stump that was bristling with frost, and to my great happiness, I happened to take one picture at an angle that would work for the mushroom! So, I carefully cut the mushroom out of its grassy image and then darkened tha background in the stump image, cut out a layer to go "in front" of the mushroom stem, so that I could nestle it into one of the gaps in the stump, and placed the mushroom in place! :D

To me, this is a nice way to be able to share two images I wouldn't have bothered with if I didn't put them together! And what's extra cool is that I didn't even think about this possibility when I took pictures of either of them. It just worked out. :)

I normally would prefer a natural photo, but this is just superb. The diamonds on the mushroom are gorgeous and as for the stump - wonderful. Thank you too for explaining how you did the effect. I've not tried to photoshop yet, I think I'll have to try it out.
