Re: Floral arrangement

Sorry to be thick Rod but there are perhaps less than obvious differences betwixt Affiniti and Adobe in terms of creating an accurate step by step instruction set.... thus made no headway... However I used a process called OVERLAY and painted over the flowers in a bid to see if that made a differenc...

Re: Floral arrangement

Re: Floral arrangement

Thanks for the instruction set Rod.... But it seems layers are not available in RAW in Affiniti, I suspect I need to go for DEVELOP to make layers available in THAT stage of the programme...?

Re: More Waxwings....I found their hangout

Thanks for the detailed insight relative to the effort and techniques you utilise to capture your wonderful images Jonny. My first attempts while in Canada, even with less than educated settings, I still managed to capture some which I thought were reasonable images, though all were tripod mounted.....

Re: Gráinne portrait, take 2

Re: Bird photography FAIL

Thanks for taking the time to provide CC David, much appreciated.

Floral arrangement

Had another go at PP with this when it was a raw file reduced file size and converted to JPEG for posting here...Nothing fancy done, just cropped a little, sharpness, contrast exposure in a bid to give it a tad more punch...
