I would start by adding some perspective to the grass, thats the main reason it looks flat, in my eyes. I duplicated your grass layer 4x and then merged them into one. You created the grass with a bit of an angle to it, so I used that to my advantage and placed 2x facing one way and 2 the other, so they helped create a vanishing point. After I merged ...

Most of the time its people wanting to remove the black or white background and leave the rest but the premise is the ...

An easier way than masks: using blends. Here's how I would go about creating the first one: Grab yourself a picture of a cityscape. Make it greyscale if it isn't already. Next, grab yourself a picture of a bearded hipster with glasses. Convert to black and white or greyscale and up the brightness and contrast. I've also painted some white over some ...

Crop it manually. Add a plain background colour (or clone some of the existing background) to pad the image to obtain the correct ratio. Use Content-aware resizing.

In my experience shooting portraits: 95% (sort of) of clients want "Put some Photoshop on it, Ok?" Woman are worried about weight and wrinkles. Man are more worried about weight. As Ryan commented, a temporary feature like blackheads, some ...
