Magnificent view, can understand why you call this your favorite.

So sorry that the curves plug-in still doesn't work. Wish we could sit down and sort it out - but it's a long way from here to there!

Another (free) possibility for curves is to install Irfanview, and then add the pse plugin called Smartcurve.

Hi Mole! Thanks for your kind words, indeed. Glad you like the photos.

I do have Irfanview... I will search the web and see what I can find concerning Smartcurve. Many thanks for the info.

All the best!

One way to handle the difference in sharpening is to duplicate the background layer a couple of times. Then sharpen one for the foreground and the other for the background. Then erase the part of the layer you don't want, so the other shows through (you do the same thing in the full version of photoshop using layer masks, one of the big things I discovered I missed this time when my computer was in the shop).

I have not tried this yet... I'm too green at post-processing... but reading your words, and light bulb has turned on. Thanks.
