I was wondering where this photo had gone.I went to the trouble of leaving a critque only to find it had then been deleted.
Would have been best to leave it in place so those of us who went to the trouble of helping/critiquing didn't feel our time and effort was wasted.

I'm so sorry Justin. My intention wasn't to delete it. I actually meant to post the amended version having followed your advice. Think I took a wrong turn somewhere

No worries Richard.
Thanks for explaining.
You've done a good job on the re-post.

In the end I simply changed the levels a little to reveal some of the facial detail and hoiked up the blues and cyans slightly to wash the sky back to normality.
