Re: retouching dogs...

I like your edit but I would keep the background. I used my Contrast Mask action on this.

Re: retouching dogs...

good look the only thing I would say is try to keep some of the fur texture in the white areas on the black and white dog. Other than that, I think it looks good, you did a good job of removing the background.

Re: retouching dogs...

The contrast in the Collie was a bit too much, and some of the detail visible in the original shot was missing in the black fur areas, also a bit blown out in the white chest fur area.

If I want to be really nitpicking some of the fine hair details have been lost in the Collie picture as well, but hair extraction is almost never perfect, and so long as the customer didn't see the original shot they shouldn't notice.

Re: retouching dogs...

Hi Jerry...I like the way the bulldog came out, but the collie is just a little too washed out for me....how about this, I've cut out the dog, put it on a white background, then brought back some of the drapes around the dogs feet. I think it looks a little mor reallistic, and doesn't blow the chest fur out....

Regards.....John
