Okay, so I'm trying to learn post-processing. I have CS3, and pathetically enough I have no clue what I'm really doing. All I do is adjust colors and contrasts. So for the first time ever, I decided to dive in. I have a p&s, so I thought a good task would be to blur the background since it's way too in focus. But it looks so fake, and I don't know why! Feel free to critique my other parts. I know its crazy noisy, and my composition isn't the greatest. But remember I just took a photo of my dog to work with. It really wasn't picked out for any reason.
