I was fortunate to capture this guy in flight, but the complementing blue sky kind of detracts the subject IMO...
What do you all think about this background swap?

Firstly- THis background works better
Secondly- Teach me how to swap backgrounds. I have a bunch of BIF in bright backgrounds that i want to swap.

Thank - Kind of difficult to go thru all the steps here without step by step illustration, but any good Photoshop book or tutorial should describe this - They also have interactive DVD/CD on this subject:

I cut out the subject from its blue sky in one layer:







and then flop it on top of a background layer:

What GPS device and software did you end up getting for your D300? I think the links in the EXIF to Google Earth, etc. (that I can see with some of my EXIF viewers) are really neat.

Of course, that means members can follow your travels and find the same good locations for shooting. :-)

I got the Solmeta N2:

-> No software required (or battery required) - Highly recommended as this device is very quick to lock unlike other unit.
The after sale service is also fantastic...

Yeap - They would have traveled the same route too:

That's why I like Pbase, if you click on any picture in the gallery it would map every shot in that gallery:
