Here I’ve used work mostly shot on assignment for Wild Wonders of Europe (and under contract until December 2012!) in the French Alps a couple of years ago. This panel will find its way into Meet Your Neighbours when the material is released.
On a technical note, I find the easiest way to work is to drawn a very loose selection around the subject – well away from its edges – to get rid of most of the excess background, duplicate that background layer and convert that selection to a Smart Object. This is then dragged onto the composite page and scaled (cmd/ctrl T) to taste.
