Great work Rachel...when I try and blur around sculptured surfaces it is very obvious but I cannot detect a false stoke....If you were closer I would be around for lessons....john

A beautiful shot of a lovely looking bird. You have done the background very professionally. (I agree with John's comment!) Viv

Thanks everyone!
took me ages to learn how to blur around things.... but its not too difficult if you have patience! i aways use the polygonal lasso tool then blow up the picture really big and go round the object (bird in this case) carefully. then all you have to do is go to selection - inverse - then click on filters - blur - gaussion blur then move the slider depending on how blurred you want it. if there are any edges that dont look right - just blur them with the normal blur tool or clone them out after..... go on give it a try!
