Thanks
With big thanks to Aimelle for her enthusiasm and willingness to work with my file, and show me all the different possibilities of working with curves, overlays etc, to make the colours in the pic come out better, and get rid of disturbing reflections in the water. Your clear instructions and examples were so helpful, my friend. One couldn’t have a better teacher! Thanks a lot!
