I too prefer this edited version. The textures are much more exciting. Well done. -Michael

You did an excellent job on this, Nico. The perfect processing for the textures and great color rendition as well. It's wonderful! ~Sharon

I like both versions, Nico, but I think I prefer this one because it is more tactile, which seems more consistent with the textures. The other one is nice in a more...ethereal?...sort of way. Well seen and captured.

Thanks for the various comments.

Pops, fair question and one I have kind-of been expecting. I posted the straight-from-camera version in Pending, plus some comments as to the editing. (Some people told me I should have stuck to the original, but I like the more contrasty version.) Kind regards Nico

This is great. But I have to ask, is there some photoshop going on here? I can fully believe a yes or a no answer. And even if this is a PS image it doesn't diminish a bit how good it is.
