Digital collages inspired by gelatin prints

So the digital girl in me has taken over this weekend. I had some minor surgery late last week (very minor, and mostly annoying) so I have been having a restful time photoshopping. You might remember the gelatin prints I made on fabric not too long ago. I had photographed them in various positions, so I decided to see what kind of digital collages I could make with them, and here are a couple. I added in a layer of trees from photos I took over the summer. I have several of these collages done, and am playing with some more.
