      Any suggestions on how to remove an "aura" from around a selection in an image?  I shoot pictures at rodeos.  To make the rider stand out, I create a mask around the rider and then blur the background with Gaussian Blur.  This results in a noticeable blur around the outside of the selection.  I have tried using Feathering as well as other Refine Edge Tools.  The only thing that works is to go around the edge with the Clone Tool.  This is time consuming and not totally successful.  So, my two big questions are: (1) Is there a better (simpler) way to avoid the aura? and (2) If not, is there a way to remove the aura that is simpler?? 

       

      Thanks in Advance,
