I can still remember my first Lillian it stays with you.
This is a great Kingy with the lines down the back and slight turn of head. Exposed on the whites very nicely and very good detail.
Tip to bring the eye out is select it and then adjust highlights to just lift it when in shadow from the turn of head.
Excellent capture
18 Jan 2012 9:09AM
Congratulations. I'm told it becomes adictive Smile.
