Default Re: Photoshop question.

I do something similar with most of my pictures of China, with the white polluted skies. The same technique was used in my long jump picture.

1) Duplicate the base layer.
2) add a solid but contrasting colour layer. If you are working on a black cat, try a blue or red layer.
3) use a variety of erasing tools, selections and remove any part of the duplicated layer. Make sure you finish the edges with a soft edged eraser, it helps in making it look natural in the new environment.
4) use what is left over.

feel free to contact me if you need more help than this.
