Hi and Welcome and I think ya did well with this! What's really interesting to me are the totally different approaches. I have all 6 open in tabs so I can toggle among them. There's nothing wrong with Bob's original other than lacking excitement. I took it and went all dark and moody, picking out the reds and letting everything else fade into background. (Here there be tygers.) Duck went the other way with a wild red and yellow palette, negating all the greens. Bob himself came back with a lightning treatment. Frank's has an ethereal neon glow. Yours, RB, is probably the most realistic treatment, looking about as Bob may originally have wanted it to look. The main thing is that from one file there are probably an almost infinite amount of treatments possible. That's awesome! (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

We are very gentle folk, and we are glad to see you here. I know your work and look forward to seeing some of your images here, especially your prairie sentinels series.
