I wasn't sure what to burn, so I burned the heck out of everything.

Great subject and your sense of humor is alive and well, too. Really could use some burning in. I know you've told me you're working on that, but if you will permit me to be forward (not too much, I hope; I'm trying to help), I'll share a couple burning pointers that have worked for me.

1. Set your brush size for soft edges, and almost exactly the size you need to cover the entire area. Too small will create a harsh line that's noticable.
2. If you're using photoshop, use the snapshot function after each change, so you can go back easily if you goof.
3. A very little change can make a big difference.

Amanda, if you're still speaking to me after such brashness, I hope I've helped. Keep the great work coming, we all really enjoy seeing it.--Chris

Amanda, I think this is improved quite a bit. Now I can notice that the duck's ground foot has a little toe-forward action going, and I really do get a sense of the ballerina connection. Very well done indeed.

I advise just practicing and practicing with burning and dodging both. What's the worst that could happen? I love that we have the power to experiment with digital photography and still come back to the original image and try again.--Chris
