Just practicing. Started to go off on my own, I think it's good where it's at though it feels like there should be something else but maybe that's why I'm not a designer.
Really struggled with the hair strands but the background in the original pic had so much varying contrast that everything I tried (quickmask, wand, color range, channels) failed to get it just right. I've read that CS3's "Refine Edge" tool works wonders.

Comments welcome.

About 36 hrs of work. All photo elements are my own pics. Thanks to the following:
