I give up - I just can't seem to lose the slight banding on the background without blowing out the left hand side of the vase so I'm going to call it quits tonight.
Any bright ideas will be appreciated - I've tried various layer combinations, burning, erasing, curves and whatever I use I either lose the left edge or the bit of shadow from the vase.
Maybe I'll be better taking the shot again sometime!
