B&W/Color contrast attempt - critique please! - Photography

    Default B&W/Color contrast attempt - critique please!

    After buying the Canon A70 today, I took about 50 shots in my
    backyard. For a bunch of them, I tried the Black&White/Color layers
    effect in Photoshop when I got back inside.

    This was one of my favorite results:

    What do you think? Also, if anyone has an online photo album with a
    bunch of these b&w/color effects, please post the URL for me. I'd love
    to learn from what other people are doing. I'm trying the effect with
    a pet bird, leaving him in color and the background as b&w but so far
    it looks a bit tacky. It's hard to lasso each little feather in the
    layer.

    Thanks in advance,

    Version 8 of Paint Shop Pro has a new utility for cropping backgrounds that
    should make this job easier. Download the trial version from [url]www.jasc.com[/url],
    and see how it works for you.
