Good capture, just a shade too light as you can see on the highlights on the leaves. click

A very interesting abstract shot. Love the pattern and the very Autumnal leaves *click*

Thanks for taking a look Suey, appreciated. I hesitated on this post, not sure it's up to standard but thought I'd give it a go, still not sure.

Nice and sharp, well worth posting, although the thumb really doesn't give a clue as to it's impact. I only looked because I saw it in your portfolio, Brian. Might benefit from a touch more saturation and a slight lowering of the highlights perhaps? Well done.

It's a nice composition but something's not quite right, it is perhaps a bit too light and maybe a touch oversharpened. I tried it in photoshop, copy layer and put in multiply blend mode - that gives it a bit of wow!

Thanks, Eric, Mark & Eddie, viewing and comments appreciated.

Eric - you may have noticed in my reply to Suey that I hesitated in posting this one, can't seem to get it quite right whatever I do.

Thanks Lydia for your input too, appreciated. I really must get to grips better with my editing program (PSP8) for whatever I did didn't seem to do the trick - what you mention moves beyond my working knowledge and I'm inclined to learn as needed. One or two books on my Christmas list may move me on - just have to make sure I don't spend so much time on them I take no photographs.

I know nothing about PSP I'm afraid, I've never even seen it!. I'm learning PS as I go along (mainly by 'pressing buttons' to see what happens. Smile

All similar Lydia, I have most of the basics mastered but keep wondering if there is an order things would be better done in and the best way to tackle the more 'complex' operations.

Wonderful textures in the drain cover, simply but striking Brian.

Thanks for taking a look and for the comments, Mary, appreciated as always. Took this the other year, spotted it at my feet whilst waiting on a seat for my wife to return from shopping.

Nice pattern, Brian.

Will look at all I've missed in my week-long absence and will click as appropriate, but won't necessarily comment on everything as there's far too much!

Thanks for taking a look, Rob, and for your comments, appreciated. I was concerned I had been a bit heavy handed (again) with sharpening.
