The wild azaleas have been particularly pretty in our woods this spring. For those who are interested, here's a couple more shots:

I have Rawshooter Essentials (latest version) and Photoshop CS (8.0). Had a trial version of NC but found it added little to the other two.

I felt the same about NC but now I feel it renders the D2X raw files the best of any of them. I use it first then if I need anything it does not offer, I use Photoshop CS 8.0. In any case I would do image>duplicate>adjustments>levels>image>adjusments>hue/saturation>filters>unsharp mask> approx 115/.5/0 on the first image and see what you got.

Pa,

I am so jealous you get to wander around in the woods...

I have never seen wild azaleas, and never an azalea that color. Very pretty.

Boost in color will help alot..Perhaps a bit of cropping to isolate your subject.

Now go have fun in the woods :>)))
