I usually shoot an out of focus background pic. When shooting birds at a location. I put this up as a pic on flickr and got a few good responses to it. The old one with the original background got none.
This is an easy fix in PS. I have been working with photo-shop for 2 years now, and just now getting to this point. Mainly due to not being exposed to other people who use the program, and useful feedback. An essential program for birders I think. A bit of a learning curve but well worth the efforts.
