To Merlin: some more background texture retained?peter_stoeckl::2006-09-27 16:24
Hello Nigel,

thank you for your kind critique and the very useful comments you made by stating your preference for "some more background texture retained".

To a very similar shot of the same individual of P. sacerdos I posted a workshop with the original version showing the very busy BG caused by dense vegetation that I felt prompted to "clean" to remove distracting contrasting elements. If your time allows please have a look into:

and check the workshop I added with some of my considerations for discussion.

As a general rule, I would always prefer to leave a picture as it comes from the camera. If on rare occasions postwork cleaning may be useful or not - and where to stop it - may be discussed here on TN for good reasons.
Thank you!

Best regards,
Peter
