    Brilliant finish to this picture Colin.
  • Thank Roy for the great comment. I really enjoyed doing this series. It’s taken me about 3 weeks on and off, still trying to find my way round photoshop elements, it aint easy.

    Very nicely done, Colin! Most effective post processing! How are you liking Elements? I’ve been using it since 2.0 and now have 8.0 on the Mac and 6.0 on the PC. Learning new stuff almost every day. A book you might want to get: “Photoshop Elements, The Missing Manual” by Barbara Brundage. Worth a look, anyway.


  • Thanks Mike. I am finding Elements 7 OK, seems to do most of what I want at the moment and no doubt a whole heap of stuff I’ve not dicovered yet. I am trying the free Topaz adjust 4 plugin at the moment it is amazing, think i mighy shell out for it when the trial is up. many thanks for the heads up on the book I will look out for it. All the best Colin.
