Wren 2 (juvenile)

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, had a play in PS with this for a project I'm working on at the moment. BG replaced using Gaussian blur at 100% and a mask applied. haven't tried this before so all comments on how I could improve it most welcome.
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my Juvenile Greenfinch and a special thank you to Pete for the HC, really appreciated,

Marvellous shot of a bird I reckon I have never seen: excellent detail and a most attractive 'pose', Geoff.
Your work on the b/g looks just fine to me.
