Description


Congratulations to all the Spetember winners, terrific work!

I did a little more work on this one and I guess like all works in progress, I'll keep at it until I get it right. Made adjustments to color, contrast, brightness, highlights, cloned out a distracting portion to the right of the snake's head and added a border and name.

Still busy today, but will return to commenting tomorrow.
