Brilliant Dave ,fantastic image,very impressive.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
A great photo Dave. I think efton is referring to unsharp mask, which is a tool used in photo editors like Photoshop. The digitising process in cameras causes the edges between objects and colours to become soft or unsharp and they need a little help from software to bring them back. If you dont have any software there are some nice free progs on the internet. GIMPShop is an image manipulating program. And a great program for converting RAW files and sharpening is Pixmantec rawshooter. I got a copy a few days ago and it seems a superb little program. Hope this helps
big help. thanks donmac. Photoshop elements 2.0 came with my camera but I'll check out the other programs too. I'm getting a new computer next week so I should be able to do this photo stuff a lot easier than with the cheap laptop I have now.
