For me, the new versions are much better.

More interesting eyes on photo 1 and you've tidied up the neck area.

Better scattering of images on the joiner and you've raised the exposure so it's not as muddy.

I like the Skipool image.

I envy your creativity Sue.

The joiner is much better. The scatter looks much more natural and the white is less dominant. Breaking up the lines of the image has introduced a real sense of movement. The exposure is also brighter and better for it.

I like the creek image. Using the image as the background really works here.

Gordon.

Hi Sue

Your expertise is amazing and the changes do improve the images. I said to you on Saturday that these kind of
pictures are not my cup of tea (obvious really in my case as I don't understand Photoshop) but I can appreciate the
work you have done to create the images.
Well done Boss Lady.

Hi

Thought that I would add my five pennyworth on Saturday morning. Herewith the original 'Guitarist' and then the
final version after advice from the mighty John and Paul.
