    Like the first, try upping the contrast a tad though, get out there and shoot!

    I've been thinking about that last shot quite a bit today. I like how the picture seems balanced with him on one side and the rock thing. I hate the ugly green chair that's up front but he didn't know I was taking the picture, so I couldn't exactly stand up and move it. :lol:

    :lol: I did some pp, with my limited knowledge of photo editing in PSE. What other adjustments should I make?

    I would like to see the originals. It may be easier to pp them.

    hmm, they're on the same website as the edited versions. I shrunk them a bit, did that help?

    The pictures that you posted ended up being very small pixels, so it was impossible to get the best results. However, I did mess around with this one (which was my favorite) and came up with something less saturated and made the dog stand out just a little more.

    You should be able to do very little pp to the originals to achieve a nice result, because I think the originals are not too bad to begin with. Maybe lighten, sharpen, crop, etc? This is what I came up with and I'm almost hesitant to post it because it isn't something that I would call a final product, but you get the idea.

    how did you blur the background but keep the dog sharp?
