Now that you've got the bike saved you can basically do anything you like with the background, clone it, blur it, black it out, texturize it etc. When you've got the background how you want it, paste the bike back in and place it exactly over where it was before. (It's handy to leave a little of the bike and foreground when you're playing with the background to help the alignment when you paste it back in). Then if you're happy with the look of it, go to the layers tab and flatten the image.

    There are many more detailed ways of doing this type of adjustment, but this can work fine to isolate just one element in an image.
    Cheers. yeah, it is something I have been working on, all takes time haha. thanks for the info, I'll give it a crack

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    already posted a version of this during the week.
    edited lr/on1/psd.
    original 2 file blend done in ON1, as was enlarging the log which I feel was the big drama in the previous edits..
    Still not going to be a photo that changed to world; however it is a picture I worked more purposely with from capture to the "finished" edit ..
    I have added a 1/2 done colour version just for comparisons
    Honest comments/suggestions and questions welcome

    Simple subject with complicated processing (apparently). The result worked out fine. (Remember that KISS applies to processing too)!

    I like the simplicity and abstract feel of the 3rd one (The B&W shot)

    Interesting edit Ian.

    thanks Chris; I'm always happy to share ideas as it gives me a reason for the photos and editing

    Boof; again!

    Certainly didn't mask out like we see the experts doing it
    Comments/cc/questions welcome

    Why the background? didn't like the original; sort of not full enough and it's good practice

    I usually mask in Photoshop, then use refine edge tool. works great for hair and such.

    I cannot afford such an expensive program so I buy 1/2 a dozen smaller ones
    PSE does an OK job too.

    Of course I was being too fussy for an online pic

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    as posted in the On1 fb users group

    I would love to say all done in On1 2018; however bits were done in Lr5/Pse12/On1 with everything coming from the 1st image; just a quick snap from the garden this morning after some rain last night --- camera in one hand and bit of black 'carpet' held in the other hand.

    background is the flower stretched/rotated/motion blurred in On1 and colour charged with hue adjustment [pse]

    front flower
    Lr5 / all the basic stuff (after trying to do it in On1)
    On1 / dynamic contrast /glow sunshine/ ++ ?? to the flower
    Pse / masking [sorry On1] / blending
    On1 / vignette / 2 borders
    Took 3 or 4 times longer than normal as I was having dramas in On1 layers, so gave up and went to pse which is not good in many ways but it does seem faster than On1 where I feel Effects is the main difference to make On1 worth the frustrations

    questions/cc/comments welcome

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    interesting idea to put an object itself on the background and then blur it. I'll need to try that out.
