    Red face After some HDR adjustment?

    I thought the shadows looked a little ... dark? Sorry.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    That looks much better. I still have alot of learning with PS. Did you make an HDR of the image? If so what program did you use?
    Thanks Frank

    Well ... the idea is to enhance the image ... and it is okay to experiment. There are a lot of images I produce that never get published ... they didn't quite cut the muster. As you can see, your images occasionally have some hidden talents ... you can bring them out. I'd like to think that is all I did. Nothing special ... just a little clarification. There are certainly tastes for this, too. The only way to do it is PRACTICE ... like everything else.

    Have fun with this stuff, Frank. You are producing wonderful efforts. Way to go.
