The weather has been really dull recently. Grey and non-distinct. This morning was a lot better with both fog and frost, so when I took the compost out, I took the c360 too, and snapped a few interesting shots.

Here is my favourite, a macro shot of some moss. Notice in the backgrown there are a few 'stems' unfurling. Nice colours, I think...

Oh, I'm posting three versions. The original, colour corrected by Photoshop Elemets 3, and one cropped.

Colour corrected in PSE3 (pretty poor correction in my opinion, but others may disagree)...

Jonny-

I like the third (the cropped version) the best. The cropping elininates the background impinging on your real subject, hence it is much smoother and more focused on your real subject. Personally, I would do some further clonning to eliminate the background as much as possible.

The third pic has not been enhanced, by the way. It has only been cropped.

I have tried to replace the background, but without much success. I'm not used to working with blurred backgrounds in Photoshop/Elements.

I'm really pleased with the c360. Not perfect - low light focus is very trying - but wonderful photos. Even through my window it produces great pictures...
