I converted to greyscale andused the clarifying action at the power of 6.0 then dodged and burned the highlites and midtones and added a little noise using Corel Paint shop pro X.

Nice conversion.

It makes the sky look very menacing.

What PSP tool did you use to dodge & burn, please? I need to learn how to do that invisibly

And I'm pleased you mentioned the noise, and demonstratedsuch an artistically good result. Until now, all the noise in my images has been entirelyaccidental - (oops, what a giveaway!)

I live and learn from you folk round here. I shall now try adding a bit of noise sometimes, as my attempted artisticimprovementsare usually all too obvious. Perhaps a future challenge could be 'howI disguised my PSP twiddling'

For example...imitation ultra-wide angle pano due to lack of viewpoint for all 4 players - Cellist's halo is rather loud & the viola has a rather complex music stand, so far. Work in progress!

Thank you Hagar and Alan! Alan, in Corel Paint Shop Pro I us the burn and dodge tools. They are located in the tool bar just below the paint brush and clone brush tools on the left side of your screen. If your tool bar isn't showing go to view menu and check tools. When you are using the burn and dodge tools you can select the strength and whether you want to do highlite, midtones or shadows. I hope I have been a help.

Bob
