I rather suspect that the photo was better before the photoshopping. I'm not a big fan of fuzzy backgrounds.

I like the pic, but as tclune has said, we need to fix the fuzz. When you post the original, I will see if I can fix it without the fuzz LOL. Other than that, the color, focus, and ,well, I would like to see the pup's face more, but that's minor. Overall I like it. However, bear in mind that I am a "kind" critiquer, there are some who are just brutal, so you will usually have to balance them out, and don't get discouraged!

OK, I took a stab. I'm not what you would call "good" at this, there are others on here that do this stuff like pros, Paul Bynx comes to mind. Anyway, I did a couple of quick edits, it is always fun working on OP's pics LOL. If you look close, you can spot my mistakes You might try some of this stuff, it can be addicting after awhile. Two principles I used are background altering and background changing. You can see how many variations of these you could get!

I'm no good at photoshopping either. But I agree that H's first attempt is on the right track.

IMHO, most photoshop bacground edits look pretty cheesy unless a lot of time is spent on it. I actually think the original is a nice shot.
