This is my first post in this forum. I was pretty pleased when I saw the way this picture came out when I downloaded them to the computer. I was busy shooting so I didn't have time to analyze each shot as I got it. This is a fairly heavy crop but I think the detail was retained. I tried to use a gausian blur in the mud and logs in the background but my photoshop skills aren't quite there yet. Any ideas how to do this? Does this work for everyone?
