Background Help

Could I have some suggestions for the best way to deal with the fence in the background of this image? The grass makes it quite difficult?

Re: Background Help

The extract filter would likely give you the best results with reasonable speed.

Re: Background Help

Hi there

The sky may not be the right background but i used it as an example.. I used the extraction filter along with the history brush to just get the separation close. Then I used the default grass brush with foreground and background set existing grass colors to fill and blend.

Re: Background Help

Wow guys, they are both fantastic!! I have had a shot at it, but I think I had better focus on taking better images.

Re: Background Help

Hey Des151,

Well done.

I took your version and added a little DOF effect.

I used Lens Blur and created a depth map based on a modified A channel of LAB.

Oh, and Maverick, nice shot.

Regards,

Michael

Re: Background Help

Thanks Michael. Great job on an already great job! I only wish I knew what you were talking about :o). I had a shot at cloning the grass but....not good. My effort looks what it is, just a repeat of a small area. Any chance of some tips Ray?. Michael is there a tutorial on what you have done? I've just gotta do this. I am really pleased with the shot but clearly my background is naff! Stunning efforts guys, its a real education in what is achievable in PS. Would be real grateful for some help guys.
