Photoshop: Lasso Tool

So, I'm still learning, but this was FUN.  I took a picture of my friend holding her son and my son.  The picture has a busy, at home background.

I used the lasso tool to capture the three people in the picture and move them to a better location.

It looks silly, I know, and I need more practice with this freehand tool, but it also looks kind of cool...this could be dangerous.

Next, I tried making it look just a smidge more realistic using the magnetic lasso tool. At the suggestion of my husband, I also inverted the photo to make the light look more accurate for the people in the picture.  This took a few times of lassoing (on a laptop, not the most precise of tools), but it looks better than the first attempt.
