After a couple of requests and following in the footsteps of a few others ... also, seeing as there's also been a forum thread started about before and after landscape shots, I have just processed this file from our Cornwall excursion at the back end of August - using my typical 'recipe' Grin

This was the last shot I took on the Tuesday evening and is so titled because shortly before this one was taken, there was a group of lads in wet suits competing against each other to see who could stay under water the longest ... not sure who won though Wink

Weekend's here folks, enjoy it Smile

It was the dead guySmile

Excellent end result and a well composed original. It's good to see the before and after shots as this is more informative than a load of exif data imo.

Funnily enough, I have just ordered Paul's dvd and have a big stopper arriving any day now after months of being on back order, so now I can confidently say I will **** it up using the right kit at leastWink
Brilliant work all through the flow Paul.
