Re: Any suggestions?

Thanks Steve. I tried to push both the blacks and the whites but got the blinkies. Did you?

Although not exactly the same i...

Thanks Steve. Tell me what you did, please. Matt
It wasn't much really beyond the crop. I pushed the blacks, whites, shadows, etc. a quarter past until it felt right.

I really liked this exercise and found it a fun image to work with! S-

Re: Meanwhile, back at the natural history museum...
