I am working with Photoshop CC 2017. I'm trying to create an Action Sequence picture.

So the photos I'll use as example are of a biker performing a jump: Full picture

But since one of the "bikers" is fully in front of a tree I want to select him and add some contrast between him and the background. Which is the best way I can select him? (Maybe a function to find huge differences between pixels in layers?)

This is the image with the person in front of a tree: 1

This is a picture with only the background on his spot: 2


Import the two pictures into separate layers and set the top one to "Difference" in the layers palette.
