Thanks very much Pat....as I said, this was my first attempt & it is definitely a work in progress... ....
One area that tripped me up was the 2nd & 3rd screen, where Leopardo made a selection & then used the Scale tool to stretch the selection for width & height....the part that gets me is how did he get such straight lines in his example?...I'm obviously missing a step or two....
On the second screen, when making a selection in the image
Phases - Edit - Copy - then do - Edit - Paste.
You'll keep those straight lines ..
Thank you both Wallace & leopardo for your help & suggestions....and your wonderful examples...
By reworking the steps using a more colorful image, I found I was making a newbie mistake...I was making the selection, but then I was automatically (for me) pasting as a new layer, instead of directly onto the image...once I sorted that out, I was able to make some progress... ...

I finally finished the tutorial! This old computer I am using is really slow. . . but steady. Very nice tut, Leopardo. I enjoyed doing it. A different kind of image, and pleasing also. Thank you, again for the tutorial!

I've tried a couple of times to post my results but the images looked weird when I previewed the post. Trying again from desktop. I'm not particularly happy with my results. I've just hit a block with this tutorial. I wasn't crazy about the hawk so I moved on to the owl, not crazy about the owl either. Penfold just for fun.
