Fun with Photoshop Elements

I hang around Elements Village  on a regular basis.  Whether you’re new  or a seasoned vet to photography or Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, it’s a place you will always learn something new or perhaps share some of your own wisdom.  The people that frequent it are a great and helpful group.  There’s no question too dumb or image that will be ridiculed.

One of the things I always enjoyed and learned a lot from was the weekly challenge.  This week I hosted the challenge and chose a tutorial by Gavin Hoey to do.  It’s called making a 3D Ball and Reflection.  I fell in love with this tut.  It’s simple, fun and the final result is very pleasing.

These are my final results:
