    Thank you mrswoolybill and dudler.
    Have looked at all your modifications and all I can say is 'Wow'!
    I have been a member of this site for a very short while, but am learning so much already from you more experienced Ladies and Gentleman.
    I have gratefully taken on board all you have said and will take it forward and be much more careful about my composition and not try to rush a shot, which is something I am very guilty of. Fully understand what you advise about 'in camera filters' but don't know how to apply the effects I want in Lightroom, and as for Photoshop, well, that may as well be a lecture on quantum physic's from Einstein himself! I have also noticed the purple fringing, and the lens I used to take this shot was traded in for the far better HD version.
    Thank you both for taking the time and trouble to advise and educate me.
    Martyn.

    Hi everyone. Thank you all for your kind comments. I have, In the past been accused of 'underselling my self' as far as pictures are concerned. I think the pictures you take are very personal to you. You see something, someone, a scene, et al and think it will make a good photo - other people in the big outside world may not agree. Without wanting to sounding to 'heavy' I think the pictures you take are an extension of your minds eye and how you see the world and as such am very cautious to whom I show my pictures to. Ha, ha, I would never make a professional photographer in that respect alone! I describe myself as a beginner, despite me mentioning in another post I had Canon AE1 Program as a teenager, but I never appreciated it as a photographic tool, I never appreciated the quality of light, composition etc. These things have only recently started to dawn on me and how much a camera, whether it be a 20.00 basic model or a 5,000 'NASA control panel' top of the range model, there is only three things that count, the shutter button, you being 'out there' with the camera and you minds eye. Have taken on board every thing you have all told me and will use it going forward in my photographic journey. Thank you everyone.

    "Its simple really - download the alternatives - try them out for free" That's the answer, of course. I too stuck with CS6 until, one day, it no longer worked. ...
