Default Our new puppy Caroline

She arrived on Monday and I tried to take photos of her in the garden.
Some of them are good.
But looking through the shots, I found this funny shot.
I modified the background because it wasn't really beautiful and colorized everything afterwards.
The shot was really blurry, that's why I had to push the contrast that high.
I was not sure about where to post this photo, so I put it here.
By the way: She's a pyrenean mountain dog and only a few weeks old. I think about 12.

Nice work, Kex.

Erasing that background could have been not so easy with all of that grass around.
Have u used "similar" selection or the selection tool ?

thanks sergio!
I copied the picture to a new layer, applied a special bluring (movement blur, don't know if it's called like this in the english PS version).
After that I put the original picture layer above that one and erased everything but the dog with the eraser and different brushes.

by the way: the grass in the foreground is also airbrushed onto the picture.

Oh yes, the opposite tecnique !
If you want to apply an effect to a part of an image u can either :
A) select the items you want and then apply the effect
B) copy the layer, apply the effect to this new layer, and erase parts where the effect is not wanted or do the reverse as you did !

It all depends on how you feel better with : the matematical selections or your good hand with the brushes.

And.....

thanks again, sergio!
Actually it is a special grass brush for the airbrush tool. So the thing with the grass isn't really difficult

By the way: I always do it the other way around as you explained it in B).
I feel really comfortable this way.
The reason is, that it is easier to take parts of the image you don't want to apply the effect on.
If I do it with a selection, it is more difficult to apply the effect for one more part or to take the effect off some party
