Perfectly lovely, William - looks like a place I would like to take a nice long walk...

The "buzz" effect works well for this image too. Well done!

Thank you all for the nice comments.
Susana, this is my first post using the buzz.
It's a great effect and easy enough to use that even I can do it.
Cheers

Thank you all so much.
I hadn't posted the original because it seemed to be lacking 'something'.
The buzz brought out the highlights and added just that touch that it needed.
Many thanks, again,
