You sure that Chinese sign said "Beware rock" or did it actually say "Beware giant Abe Lincoln"?

Yeah, well done for sure! You mind asking how you did that? Not step by step or anything, but broad ideas...

I think she typed the letters M-O-U-N-T-space-F-U-D-G-E-M-O-R-E, and then the question mark key.

Heh... OK.
Restore rock to probable original proportions---
Roughly:
Lasso along double-stamp lines, copy paste to new layer.
Move to probable original positions (multiple pieces)
Lasso remaining extra rock in original layer
Fill with sky color
Stamp, patch, heal, blur- to blend with original sky.

To Make Abe:
Lasso, paste, free transform (rotate nose) lasso, burn shadows, burn midtones, lasso, dodge highlights, stamp.

Combine with years of P-shop and a sculptor's sensibilities ...
And presto- Abe Lincoln- 10 minutes. Easy. ;-)

Nice work, Adam. Clearly, the most important tool you used was your eye. ...btw: your work is referenced here (post #6)
