Hi all.

Comments on which is better? I thought I would make the background less busy thhus making the bird stand out more.

Before - very minimal DPP


After with quite a lot of DPP

I think it works very well, Doug, it's a technique I've used myself in the past to isolate a bird from a 'busy' background. Must have taken quite a lot of time and effort to trace round the bird so accurately but the result is worth it.

Not too bad. About 30 minutes.
Basic steps
1) Use unsharp mask
2) Use gaussian blur to blur everything
3) Use the history brush to unblur the bird and appropriate branches etc

Shows what an amateur Photoshoppper I am, I have no idea how the history brush works and I've been using Photoshop for years! <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

I'm self-taught, Matt, I had a lot of time on my hands the last few years when I was unable to work due to illness, so I had plenty time to 'experiment' with Photoshop and find out what does what. Now of course I'm able to work, just not able to find a job so I still have a lot of time on my hands if you would like a few lessons! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

At least you chaps have got yourselves modern camera equipment. I am still well and truly in the stone age by comparison!

Thanks for the offer Dave. Looks like from some of your descriptions I am not to far from you. Maybe one Sat/Sun we can do WSBG?
