Mmmmm, you do have to be *difficult* and make me like this one, now don't you? ,-) And of course, you have "mushed" with it. And I say I don't like any "mushing" with photos. -sigh- Never say never, hu? ,-)

Anyway, it's amazing.

I like this version. Even though they are blurred and thus are not distracting I would clone out the bottom of the two windows in the top left and center of the picture and then see how I liked the end result. The unaltered photos are more realistic and more suitable for photojournalism, while those with the blur are more artistic. Just my two cents.

I like the original the best. I don't really like either of those you tried to do something with the background. It might just be me but it looks wrong or artificial or something. If I had my "druthers" I would have picked the original.

The third time's a charm. i think you did a fantastic job of lasso-ing the subject.

You certainly picked a difficult subject to work with.

Selecting with any tool is difficult around all of those feathers. To tell the truth I’m not sure what I like. The unaltered shot is very sharp and the eyes certainly are the focal point of the shot. It would be a toss up for me of the unaltered or this last shot or perhaps to place him on an entirely different background

Nice work, but my vote still goes for your original shot, Stuart!

Hey, these are all pretty neat! I have to agree that the eyes are the centerpiece and this last photo really emphasizes that. But it does look more artistic than realistic. I can't decide!

I really like this one the best. He is so dramatic without the background details. Nice glow.
