It's fun to go back over past images and come up with new treatments. Perhaps you can apply a Photoshop technique you've just learned, or you might try a new background on for size.
I did that recently with one of the favorite Venetian costumes I photographed during one of the Carnival in Venice workshops I conduct every year. I shot this model in front of the Doge's palace in the long arched corridor, and I cut her out using the pen tool in Photoshop because this is the most precise method of making a selection - although it's the most time-consuming.
I put her in front of a picture of San Giorgio Island and the famous gondolas lined up in San Marco Square. But before I pasted her in place I applied Topaz Adjust to make the background a little more interesting. These two components - the background and the model - were sitting in my digital photo files for two years just waiting to be combined.
You also have hundreds or thousands of such combinations of pictures waiting to be discovered. Go through your digital images with this in mind and see what you can come up with.
