Thanks Darren, Virginia, Casey, Nadya, Cyn, Carolyn and Duane :0) I used the Orton Technique that Tammy brought to our attention about a week ago on an old slide. It's amazing how one can breathe new life into old film shots in the digital darkroom.

Thanks Marcie Fowler in another thread:

The technique works well with this image Murry. Like how the white trunks stand out against the darker background.
