Excellent job Steve! It's so easy to sometimes let something go in an image, but you show how much better it is cleaned up. Time & patience pays off, plus you learn by playing in PS too. Beautiful images!!

Ha! Like to think I had something to do w/ this in Ian's thread. Boy, if I could get my wife to respond to my suggestions like this, I'd really have something!:lol::lol: Silly me! Seriously Steve, that is top-notch work there. Have to study more to try to improve in these areas-heaven knows, I need to! Struggle w/ the patience necessary to learn and apply. Obviously, not your problem. Again, very well done.

Haha Rog, I'm not your wife....and we both should be glad of that :)
Yes, you were in part the reason this thread came to life, but I certainly hope others too can have their curiosities peaked. Thanks for the nice compliment too!

Thanks so much Cheryl, I'm glad you appreciate both the effort and the images. I think it's a lesson many of us learn sooner or later and I'm kind of glad I learned sooner. :)

Steve.
Wonderful shots and great PP work.

I do very little to my images. We all try to get it right in camera
but that isn't always possible. I've been using Light room 4 for 2 years
now but its clone feature is pretty bad. I've heard LR5 is better but now
I'll wait for 6. If it ever comes.

Its nice when someone shows that images can be saved without
too much work.

Always appreciate you stopping in with such nice comments Sandy. I think your comment made my point better than I did :)

It's funny Jeremy how I can sometimes get on a run where the images I capture don't need a lot of extra attention....and then there's runs like these. I'm sure you know the feeling. Thanks as always for your attention and comments.

Your very kind Mr. Bret, and as always I'm very appreciative. You know these hummers are always worth fighting for :)
