Nice shot Tom. Michael, your revision is nice too but I think it is a little too oversaturated for my taste. Something in the middle would probably work best IMO.

Interestingly, Michael's shot appears to have dust specs that do not appear in Tom's original. How did that happen?

I wondered about that too. They look like dirty sensor spots, but why wouldn't they have shown up in the original?

Very faint dust specs can really stand out when you increase contrast or saturation. Depending on your monitor, they may be almost invisible in the original file.

Great capture Tom, but it looks like there may be some very, very small dust particles on your sensor.

OK, you caught me, I took them out after I saw them on the image I posted!

Time to clean the sensor on the DS!

How about this version using Bens method?



Original

Tom - love the picture, I think I prefer the original but then I've always preferred a little less saturation in my picture (just my taste is all). Interesting about the dust spots - what's even more interesting to me is that I went back to the original and looked closely (didn't download it or change it). The only place where I thought there might be a spot is one that does not appear on the altered one. Go figure...

Thanks, I processed the photo on my 12" PowerBook and sometimes I miss things on the small screen. I think I like the original too.
