Morning Graham,

I'm Matt I also like the diffused focus around the edge forcing your eye to enter the image, well done.

Graham you could possibley do a little more in your processing to make the scene stand out. In your "Levels" window if you have a "Default" box, click on this and select "Midtones Brighter" this of course will do what it say's and remove that warming cast, I'm not sure if you applied a filter to add this or not, if you did then sorry but i've removed it in the mod Wink. Next go into "Curves" and in that "Default" box select "Linear Contrst (RGB), these are just the automatic and easy way of these alterations if you fell like it grab the sliders and play Grin you can't do any harm to a COPY Wink. Then select "Filters" > "Other" > "High Pass" and add around 0.9 (again hace a play) then into your "Blend Modes" and select "Soft light" this acts as another way of sharpening and you can reduce the opacity if it's to much.

I've made these adjustments in the mod and I think it makes the focal point clearer, see what you think.

Take care
Martin
