CS3 or CS4?

....i have both versions of PS, i still tend to lean on cs3 more than cs4 simply because i am more comfortable with it. CS4 made some changes in menus and menu styles which are a bit confusing to me, however there are a few new tools and the adjustment sensitivity is a bit more intuitive and sensitive. The new Bridge is ' blue ribbon ' and FAST, which is helpful when batching.......either way, both are top notch IMO, me personally, if i could get the newer version for the same $, its kinda a no-brainer. BTW, there are some good videos on cs4 at ' layers and enjoy.

i spend alot of time shooting S.E. wildlife, ' specially birds', when in Fla. These are some beautiul captures. As the S.E. teems with offerings for birders, it is not difficult to find subjects, but it is sometimes difficult to get the shot.......nice work to be proud of.

Need some PP Background help

tough image to isolate, but not impossible. The color of the furniture partially conceals the hair and makes separation difficilt. U didn;t mention your process for separation, or what ver. of ps u are using. i usually use the quick selection tool, or the extrude tool for iniitial isolation.......smoothing or softening the edges after stripping the background can be acheived a number of ways depending on how hard or soft one wants the edge.......a challenging project none the less. Losing the black outline woud definetly enhance the image and give it a more natural presence.....
personally, my biggest enemy of pp is time. and i often will work on an image for as long as it takes to satisfy my personal vision, but on occassion just find i want to ' get it done ' and therein i ofetn find failure. good luck, nice image over-all, and wise decision to try and alter the back ground........would like to see a final piece.
