So you think you can dance?

Watched these two toddlers trying to dance to the rhythm of a dozen bongo drums at the local Huntington Beach Pier. Masked them out in ReMask, then changed the background to B&W and applied a blur effect. 5:00 p.m. and sunny...thus the long shadows C&C welcome.

Very cute picture of the kids and a great job of PP.:)

Walter - I like some of the edit. The problem with the blur affect as applied is you've blurred the ground they are standing on - just looks completely odd It looks like you cut the kids/shadows and pasted on something else entirely - they don't appear to belong. I'm all for subject isolation, but I think this goes a bit too far as they do not appear to belong in the background at all - no integration.

I agree with John. The blur effect also catches the boy's right arm, but the girl, who is obviously farther away, is in focus. this also contributes to the pasted effect.

Is this better?

I didn't notice the blurred ground at first but can see a big difference now, much better looking now.:)
