I'll post some small so the thread doesn't get to long (and it's easier for smartphone viewers to see the whole pic hehe) Been I while since I've created one.
This was the first one I tried several months ago.. I didn't own a tripod or the right software yet... (downloaded GIMP straight after uploading this LOL)

Again my son, about 1 1/5 months later with software & tripod:


I like to change clothes for clone shots too.. (to tell a "story")


But that isn't always necessary LOL


The last one I made was around X-mas...

@andrewdearling thanks Andrew, I was surprised at how easy it was! just looked at your tutorial, and definitely might try the masking layer thing next time. oh and using a tripd and remote flash would have been so much easier than balancing my camera on a high shelf and using the 10sec timer, but away at a hotel I had limited kit! It's all part of the fun I suppose!!

@elke Oh wow, you're a pro! And good plan for posting them small. Never occurred that the large photos dont scale to the phone

@andrewdearling Haha well between the first and the last pics there's about half a year of experimenting, first with Gimp and later PS CS5 ;-)

Wow, how cool. Does anyone know how to merge (or if you can) in Lightroom 4?

@vorka You can't do this with just Lightroom because you have to be able to mask and layer :(

Here's mine!

I haven't done any this year. I did three last year. This one to celebrate my daughter's 22nd birthday.



This one, because my youngest wanted to be cloned.



And this one, because I got ambitious one day.

This is the only one I've done so far. It was a blast; I'm definitely going to do more when I have time.

My first and only attempt. The shadows made it harder than I cared for, and don't forget me peeking from behind the shed as well. :)
