I was working on this image yesterday, and thought I’d share my results. I used Perfect Mask to remove the background, and Focal Point to blur the new background separately so that it blended with the rock climber.
And, if you’re familiar with any of my other books this is the same model and location who posed for my book-cover of my Canon 60D book. :) (http://bit.ly/OO7TRy) BTW, if you’re interested in any of the onOne software products, use the discount code NICOLESY for 15% off. :)
