Nice santigwar. I will say that you will get the best results using the pen tool. It can be tricky at first but once you master it nothing can compare.

Personally, I prefer masks for that sort of thing - I use a Wacom tablet for it, but you can do a good job with a mouse as well.

Here are some of my guidelines for Photoshop when used in relation to photography:

The only filter worth using often is Unsharp Mask. (That I can think of at the moment, at least.)
Never, ever use a lens flare filter.

The right adjustment with Levels and Hue/Saturation can turn a mediocre photo into a masterpiece.

One thing I have noticed in Photoshop is that if you use the Safe For Web feature, it will slightly desaturate the image and lower the contrast from what it appears in Photoshop itself. A fairly simple correction is to do the following before using Save For Web:

1. Set the Saturation to +22 in the Hue/Saturation window.
2. Set the mids to .88 in the Levels window.
3. Save for Web!

Note that this will not work perfectly for every photograph and may require some adjustment - but it's a good place to start from.
