    the first one looks great.... the second looks good as well just a tad less action .... are you trying a new plug in or something ?

    Excellent, Jeff! Especially 1. Poster material, I'd say.
     
  7. Both are great Jeff. Your work is becoming some of the best around here and you should be proud.

    See Ya

    Thanks so much. I have to give the credit to Joe Marques...he pretty much told me what to do.
    If he wrote a book called Lightroom for Clueless Dummies, it would be with me in mind.:biggrin:
    Thanks Joe!

    Dennis, thanks for the kind words. Although my stuff is FAR from the best around here. I'm just happy they let me post here. :smile:

    Thanks Chris.
    I had to do some cropping with the D300, but the files held up well in RAW.
     
  12. You're far too kind. An excellent image is always easy to process so the work was mostly done in camera. Nice stuff. :biggrin:

    Now Joe...you are being far too humble. If it was that easy..I could have done it without help. :smile:
    Yes, it was easier..much easier, because I had a *very* patient and knowledgeable teacher, tell me step by step what to do. And even then my image wasn't as good as the teacher's version.

    When I was in college, I took a class in chalk drawing. Super talented artist, he'd say...draw this. He'd make a drawing that looked so simple..I'd think..no problem, I can do that. Right.
    That's when I learned about skill and talent. Those who have it make the hard stuff look simple. :smile:
