Half of a Burgundy landscape shot. There is the corner of someone's house in the rest of the shot, so I had to give it 'the chop'!

WOW. This in Russian "Skazochno" means literally "picture from a story" Smile Perfect 10. How did you get such a result?

Thanks very much Karifan! My secret recipe involves lots of playing around in Photoshop till it looks ok. I mainly use curves, and I usually start in rgb colour, but transfer to lab colour to get it just right. Shadow/highlight is helpful too. I almost always 'unsharp mask' it first, as to do it afterwards would take away from the effect a bit. (I think!)
Basically, I love messing around in Photoshop. Most of the time I mess around too much until it looks rubbish, but sometimes I am lucky! Smile

Thanks again for your lovely comment. Stewart.

Generally successful accomplishment, but this time there's an un-painterly effect apparent amongst the upper tree limbs.--Chris
