    Lovely image!
    I wonder if the colors will get somewhat deeper if it is darkened a bit in Levels…

  • Thank you so much, dear! And yes, they probably would, but I think I like them a little softer, in this pic. Thank you for your suggestion though, I do appreciate your comment and always enjoy when people give hints to improve my work – I always learn from that :)
