Gorgeous image, Jim!!! I love the colors and comp! I just found out a little different way to lighten a photo. Duplicate the background layer and change the blending mode to Screen then lower the opacity until you like the results. It doesn't seem to me noise is as obvious doing it this way. Thanks for the tip! #2960964

f/4.5, 1/60s, Canon 100mm Macro, 100 ISO. I tried a different way to add some saturation to this image. I duplicated the original layer and changed the blending mode from normal to overlay and adjusted to about 40%. Then I sharpened the image with another duplicate layer changing the blending mode from normal to soft light and used the high pass filter which I adjusted to taste. These are two new ways (for me) of doing the same old thing in PS.
