Default Editing Fun--OOB Song Sparrow

I shot this little fellow in my front yard Christmas morning. The background was nicely out of focus, but the colors were much the same as his. The OOB allowed more focus on his markings.

Great job but it almost looks like the bird is pasted in.

It definitely was not pasted, but the original had such a narrow DOF as to give almost that same feeling.



I understand your point, because I have done other OOB's that had even more of a feel of posted elements. In this one, the frisbee was not pasted in, but it almost feels like it.

paul,
In my eyes the bird somehow seems out of place. I think has to do with the scale of the sizes of everything, the bird and the rocks.
Love you dog and frisbee.
Aloha
