    Chaz, I like the image, but it seems just a little too bright for moonlight. If it were mine, I think I'd either mask and darken the light areas, or, more simply, compress the dynamic range with the levels adjustment.

    Hi Bob, Yeah I pretty much blew the highlights on the original and moving the white slider in levels adjustment made it murky looking. I guess a good curve could pull it back some. Will have a play later. It may interest some to know that the man in the picture is in fact a tree that looked so much like a mans face I made it into one! :)

    Late day, very Sunday afternoon feel to it. I am drawn to the space beyond the gap in the hedge. I keep trying to see what is going on over there. Something ....

    Excellent technique.
