OlBaldy, you're a hoot!

russell brown on lynda.com can show you how to mask fur
Katrin Eismann's book on Masking and Compositing would be a good investment for you I believe

use the smudge tool on your mask to soften the edges

I think the perspective on the two images is slightly different

That sure looks promising. I need to have it on a white background instead of black, would you please explain your steps as to how to achieve this ?

Thanks in advance, Ljupco

Thanks grannysdc's It worked. Out of all the difficult techniques I've tried, this one worked best. Here is the full size image for all of you to see :

Re: How would you do this ?

The best technique for masking this type of fur is extracting it with any extraction filter/plugin/calculations/levels. Then, to give it a quality finish, smudge some hair out in little wisps with a small smudging brush on the rabbit layer.
