This is way cool. Love the clocks!! And the theme too. My only suggestions are that there are dark outlines on her fingers on the hand to our right. Also I am not sure about that much yellow tint on the girl's face. Besides that, this chop has a lot of "WOW!!" and impact even at first glance.

author says:

Thanks BWR. That dark outline happened due to the layer effects of the stones. I tried to mask it out but it stayed wherever the mask ended. I was tired and clueless as to what to do about it last night so I left it and then forgot about it. Since you mentioned it, I ended up cloning over the area. It was the only way I could think of to fix it. If you have an easier way, I am all ears.
I also reduced the yellow tint on her face. Thank you very much for your very helpful suggestions. Much appreciated.

I understand the issue with layer effects showing where you don't want them to show. It can be tough. Without seeing your PSD it would be hard for me to say how to fix it. Maybe put another layer of the stone that doesn't have the layers effects on top of the one that does, and then mask that in only where that dark stuff was?

I don't know how you made your mask, but perhaps you made it by masking the stone into the hand? Maybe masking or copy/pasting another hand ON TOP of the stone would have worked better instead of masking the stone?

Anyways your cloning looks awesome. It's more smooth by getting rid of the wobbly look of your old mask. Looks clean. I reckon sometimes a hammer and chisel is needed in Photoshop rather than some nifty technique.

I did mask the stone into the hand. You are absolutely right that another copy of the hand placed on top of the stone would have worked much better. I will keep it in mind for next time.
I also found this tip on you tube..... How to mask layer styles.

You might find that handy too if you didn't already know about it.

I'm pleased that you think I did a good job of the cloning.
Thanks again for your help.

Wonderful video!! Funny thing is that I saw that video some time ago but completely forgot everything he said. It may have come in handy to fix your issue. We have both learned form this and that's a good thing.
