I do like the approach, but the noise is bothersome. Perhaps a run through Neat and then some watercolor?

This is a great S****t. It does look a tad too grainy but a run through Neat as has been suggested may just do it. As it is such a nice capture I would try a few other enchancements just to see how they looked.

you guys have to forgive my posts, and lack of comments sometimes

daytime is a pain in my house for it is all windows and i can't see detail, color or

variations in sharpness very well. especially when it is sunny.

i do have curtains, but it is a beach house and they are quite sheer.

i have to throw a blanket over my head and moniter so as i can see what the shot

actually looks like. that's why i usually post in the evening or night.

will work on both shots and more when i can actually see the the buggers! (with the

help of my patented daquirie filter, of course!)

thanks for the help.

Very nice with the filter. Maybe blur the water? Seems a bit harsh to go with the smooth sky.

Perhaps if you moved from that sunny beach house to somewhere cold and dark it may be a bit easierto seethe monitor. :? I know the perfect location if you'd like to swap. :lol:

Very nice image. My only suggestion... try to remove the white halo that surrounds the branches on the left. Very powerful.

Sorry Scot, this really doesn't do much for me - much prefer your 'un-processed' efforts, which have been really good and inspirational of late.
