Feel free to play. I would love to see what others would do. I am at a loss to go beyond my sloppy use of the brush tool in Lightroom with any precision. Matt

That is simply gorgeous. You’ve inspired to to try some shots of my calla lilies.

Thanks, Minnie. Tomorrow, I will look at the Lightroom auto mask video link Steve Posted and return to this to see what I can do. I would love to see how Ernst would treat this. Matt

Honestly I liked the color just fine exactly as was. The black and white simply does nothing for me. I also don't think it would even had I not seen the color. (?)

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

Thanks Chuck. Yes, sometimes the b&w just isn't right; but I learn by going too far or not far enough ..Matt

True, but I have to learn when to stop sometimes. The experiment becomes an end in itself not a means to learning. I'll learn. Matt
