I understand you used Picassa. I do also along with Thunderbird and Firefox.
My question was "How" did you remove the background? I don't see a way to do that in Picassa.

A correction..., NOT sent mails using Thunderbird...ONLY trough Gmail account.

O.K...Now I will explicate you with my best possible English (It's NOT my native language...but I will try hard!), go to "Tunning" & the third slider named "Shadows"...moving it to the right will dark the background BUT will make much more contra sty the whole selected photo...so when you saw & decided that the "Background" is "Removed/Darkest"...go one slider up "Highlights" & again slide to the right till the results is acceptable to you needs. Some times I need also to move the first slider "Fill light" a little bit to light the photo a very little bit more...as i named "Some Fine Tunning"...as I do when I set up turntables (My other hobby!!!).

Now I trust that you comprehend me well?

Also!!!

Go after that to "Effects"...& press ONCE "Sharpen"...as NOT always your photo or your camera (Depends which one!), gives really a good sharpened final results...specially when you "Crop" or more photo tunning issue.

Heart full I wish you a good luck & nicer results...ever!

Alex 007, great pictures and great lens, did you use tripod? All pictures are very sharp, how can you handheld at 250mm and still have these sharp pictures? You really have magic hands.

I ordered the same lens too, but it is on back order, I don't know when it will come, I really can't wait....

I had a tour to Stanford University and San Francisco, I carried the Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 and the beercan, here are some pictures with the Tamron, no pp, only resized:
