Well, yes, there were certainly MANY things I could have done to improve it by spending more time with it. I did find time for the crumbs :-)
I may spend a few more minutes trying to make it a bit more natural though.

You can click them sergio.

Great idea mactek.

Stunning monkey! If you go around the light with a round eraser set with a low hardness value (30% or lower) it will soften the edge slightly.

ferny, I tried that - for some reason it wasn't working for me - it just looked crappy. :roll::-)

Serious or not, it works. Try it with the original flipped vertically so the perspectives of the cutting board and the "pizza" are not reversed.

Nothing personal, mactek.

And , yes, right, of course we must also consider that the time wemay spend on this other people's shotsmay also be less than the time we spend on our full resolution shots.

I must be odd then. I'm spending far more time on editing other people pictures. I don't spend more than five minutes on my own normally.:-)

You're odd, yes! :-)(j/k) I think it takes less time in that the pics are smaller and we know quality isn't as good - so we (I do, anyway) just edit for the "feel" of the picture. On the other hand, since we're highlighting our editing abilities, it can take longer - everyone knows what we start out with. When we post our own, no one knows that. And usually it's the photo, not our editing that we're emphasizing. So I can see, ferny, why it would take longer either way. :-)It's based on our personalities and impressions we want to give. Isn't that interesting? That's yet ANOTHER lesson learned in this challenge, that I hadn't counted upon when we started! :-)
