Is it possible to replace the blue sky with a blurred back ground using software?

Thanks

It is not actually blurring anything.

make the back ground like oil painting.

Or at lease change the blue color to something else if the above is not possible.

Luminar can replace the sky with another at the click of a button.

Photoshop can do anything your mind can think of.

Photoshop is the most powerful. It can do almost anything. It can replace the sky with just a few clicks, or change the color with similar ease. Advanced features have a big learning curve.

On1 software can change the color, or replace the sky in basically one or two clicks. It is fairly powerful and has a much lower learning curve than Photoshop.

Luminar is probably the most automated for sky replacement and other things. Very low learning curve.

Of course you realize that the problem with the posted image is that the bird itself is very soft. On1 can help with that too.

First, advice you asked for: using Photoshop's Oil Painting filter, I did this in about 30 seconds. No clue if that's what you're after, but it's what you described.



Second, advice you didn't ask for: you need to focus your efforts on capturing your subjects with more detail instead of worrying about post processing. This is blunt, and it's meant to be. You have a world class camera and you need to put work in on learning how to use it. The examples you post show that. Ask as many questions as you need as you work on creating tack sharp images, and then worry about what the sky looks like.

Who told you that I am trying to impress any one with the photo I used for the question.

For the topic of the thread and for the question I am asking I could have used a photo taken by a cheap phone. But that is not the topic of the thread.
