Hi,

I took this photo of my daughter yesterday. I'm using a P&S and don't really have much ablility to blur the background so I did it in photoshop. I created a dup layer used gaussin blur then deleted the areas I wanted sharp. Are there any other easier ways to do this? Would you fully sharpen the rose of leave it partially blurred?

Thanks

I think its a very nice shot.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"i think the over lap of blurring is distracting to a small degree. You should try quick masking and feathering when trying to select and blur the backing

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"ken

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"
