I took another crack at the square. It was too dark, and the square itself sort of drained attention.  So I cropped and brightened the foreground. I thought about making the cathedral brigher than the rest of the town, but that did not work for me. If this is a real printer, I will probably start ov...

Thanks, that opened my eyes.  The sky was toooooo bright and distracting.  I lightened up the foreground artichokes most. The others I saturated a little.  I wanted three levels.  The foreground is the star. 

Update: I printed and the banding in the sky is still a problem.

Ganna, thanks for the kind words.  Re: the cathedral image, my most recent thoughts were to desaturate the red ceiling. <br /><br />re: the imaging the shot.  Good idea, but you have to take what is given you.  Some of my best shots were grab. When photographing a sunrise/ sunset you do not have a l...

Good call, Greg.  It was blue.  Shadows were blue,who would have thought.  Here is the original and an update version.  This stresses the image, so noise becomes a factor.  I would probably start over in a few days and compare versions.<br />  <br /><br />I printed the group and have noticed other p...

Good question.  I posted as a means to put them out. I often correct and sit on an image.  After reopening, I make further corrections, often reducing the saturation. Sometimes I go "Ouch, who did that?" and start over.  The most interesting thing will be to go back to pre CM and redo some images.  ...

Well I added an eleven.  I switch a train shot.  Subtle change to a bird.  A lightening of both artichokes and cityscape.

For me, it is a work in progress.  The railcar (image 2) is replicated in several images, and I have not a totally acceptable image.  The last bird needs to dial back the color of the body.  It is not natural.<br /><br />The cityscape is close.  I feel if it square gets too much lighter it becomes u...

Okay here goes.  My top ten, weighted for importance to me and quality.  Few or no family members.

Notes:  Image 2 is a placeholder for the better photo.  Image 4 is a work in progress.  It looks fine in the monitor, but I have not done a successful print.

I have already "recovered" three images.  I liked them, but could not figure how to do them so they sat with 3 stars.  I will be posting along with my prior failures.
