    Hi Ray,

    As I said, I hope you won't be offended by my "playing around" with your picture.

    I've used one or two layer masks here, basically trying to darken the sky a little and to brighten up the foreground too. I think the sky was probably overexposed a little so (unless you still have the RAW file to work from) there's not the "information" in the sky to be able to retrieve it.

    Once again, I hope you're not offended by this - but see what you think - perhaps you think it now looks nothing like what you actually saw the day you took this one!

    Best Wishes,

    John.

    Hi Will,

    I saw your picture and I simply couldn't resist looking through some of my pictures from Portugal from last year. We stayed for two weeks at the lovely (though, sadly, nowadays somewhat notorious) little port of Praia da Luz but we did spend one day in Lagos, so here's a very mediocre snapshot from Logos harbour for you. Yes, there has been quite a change from when you took your photograph - lots and lots of concrete, a harbour full of pleasure boats rather than fishing craft, a long promenade, ice cream stalls, souvenir stalls - just the sorts of things I know you really love!!

    Best Wishes,

    John.

    This is a sub-contrabass flute in G which has a pipe length of nearly 15 feet and stands seven and a half feet tall and is played with the flautist standing up! It plays three and a half octaves below the piccolo.

    Hi Craig,

    Again, I hope you don't mind my "playing around" with your lovely photograph!

    In Photoshop Elements 11, I used a layer mask in Levels and selectively lightened some parts of this lady's face - oh, and some of her clothing too - to try to reduce the strength of some of the shadows. Quite difficult to do on a small image but would be much easier on the full size original one.

    See what you think anyway!

    Cheers,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    I hope that you don't mind my "playing" with your photograph!

    Using Photoshop Elements, I opened the image in RAW, reduced the noise a little and slightly increased contrast and saturation before opening it and giving it just a little touch of sharpening. Perhaps the saturation is a little strong, but see what you think!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    This big crab with enormously long legs (a Spider Crab, I think) was still moving and wobbling those crazy eyes at me!

    A rather ugly fish on display and for sale. I believe this is a type of Monkfish - an Angler Fish to be precise - that huge mouth and rows of teeth looked a bit threatening through the viewfinder! At least it seemed dead.....unlike the crab which was still moving!
