Only recently have my PS skills seemed to improve past the basics of color adjustment. It's been a while as I've had PS for a number of months now.
Yesterday I took a shot of this snail. Because I shot it in a torrential downpour, my flash (despite being diffused) reflected badly off of everything from all of the water. The snail is crazy lookin', so I had to make it better. This is by far the most work I've done on an image before.

Notice, I've removed all the hot spots (even the tiny raindrop in motion at the far right), except for on the shell (not good enough for that!). I just reduced that one. The back part of the snail's foot was a little tricky because I had to end up re-creating it once I got rid of the hot spot back there.
I'll gladly accept CC. I still have a lot to learn with PS!
