After all these years of playing with PSE and PSP, I am still a beginner regarding fixing photographs. Things like resizing, brightening up a photo or removing a small intrusive object are easy, but more sophisticated tricks, like burning and dodging or getting rid of the background are very hard to do without leaving tell tale marks.
But what is much easier is to play with a photo, like adding "wallpaper" and wings, and suddenly a ready-for-the-bin photo got a little magic and I was happy enough to frame and display it at home. Done for PaperPlay Challenge 09 week 3.
