but r u reading?? re-read my first reply......."then I played and think a curves layer brightened a touch set to soft light may improve"
no, not reading well this morning - groggy (remnents of Michael blew across last night). "Curves and set to soft light" - makes sense now.

got away with murder... my wife slept downstairs, she didn't like the way the house was moving and the howling of the wind. The dog came upstairs with me. In the morning the water was the highest I had ever seen here, a little bit seeped into the garage - I wished I had remembered to move the lawnmower up higher. We were isolated by flood waters and lost power for a little bit. No trees came down, no windows got blown out - all my shingles are still here, but might have lost some marbles... we got away with murder!

processed for detail by flattening and repainting back in highlights and shadows..EgretMarshS.jpg
I read through the comments and I know I'm the outlier but I want the background darker, like it's just getting light out.

Do you get egrets often? I'm fascinated by their grace. S-

hi Steve, the darker bg is more soothing to the eye - the cloud background is fine for a moment, but the eye tires fast - they are seasonal and in season they are easy to find. And some places like Chincoteague, you see them almost all the time.

I hadn't thought how it affects the eye but that makes sense and is something to consider in the future. Thank you! S-
