Really like this. My only critique is that I find the blown highlight at the top of the sand pile a little distracting. If it couldn't have been recovered I'd have been tempted to try heal/clone to just dampen it down a touch.

Still, overall cracking effort imo.

Thanks - but that's just bleedin' typical - took me ages to add that highlight and make it look natural in order to give the shot a focal point :(

That is, Jim, quite an extreme edit! However, I do so like the shot. And kudos for getting it before anyone else thought about those things :) Yes, I likes it I do.

Thanks M - and I don't think "extreme" does it justice - even I don't have the nerve to post the original ;)

Jim

P.S. Nice Yoda impersonation too :thumbsup:
