Hi Steve and guys,

I find that just using a layer with a mask can really be usefull in situations like this. It allows you to change the exposure to the background without changing the exposure to the bird at all (if desired) with what seems to me to be less degradation to the quality of the background.

Hey thanks Bob. I will have to give that a try. I have not done much with masks in PS. This will be a good opportunity to learn something new and useful.

Happy Holidays,
Steve
