    I was a bit slower through here this time and managed a few pictures. This was near Mt Hotham

    6.30 am start from Bombala. A bit frisky but beautiful.
    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

    Beautiful images HansE. You do have a way of presenting wonderful landscapes and you've captured the true essence of these areas with these two images.

      Very easy on the eyes Hans. Well done.
      It's the little things!

      Cheers, Greg C.

        Lockhart NSW not far from Wagga Wagga. Our first day stop for the night.

          Looks a wee bit damp Hans. Glad you had you hat on. They are so clever, making waterproof phones. You never know when you might have to make a call underwater

        I'd love to go on a bike ride and take my camera with me. But it's been years since I've been on a bike. Would be scared of falling and breaking my camera. Love what you've shared.

          I carry the camera in its wetsuit cover like a stubby holder for cameras. and than it is in a tank bag or a box in the back. Nothing would happen to it if the bike fell over. The treat of falling off is what adds the spice when riding a bike. Most of the time you don't. Surviving about 60 years of it. I don't see any excitement in riding a jetski, so you fall into the water?? I would like to come this way again in the 4wd bring a bit more gear.

        Another waterproof one taken at Lockhart. Slightly different format on the phone might crop a bit off the bottom.
        As you can see it was a busy afternoon in town.

          Oh that's just Gold isn't it? Very clever to crop out the crowd like that. Crop off the bottom would be OK, but I reckon a bit of lightening of the floor above the sign to show some texture and lighten up the Bistro Open sign. Maybe that would give it a boost. Just IMHO.

            Agree. I did paint the sign in with a layer mask to stop it becoming over exposed. Getting rid of the crowd was the easy part. They didn't even reappear when we were leaving in the morning. Another from the last day taken from the same spot as the second one.

              Redone! I made 4 copies by using "apply image and screen blend" as the original was quite dark. Then used the HDR function and the transform/skew function to straighten the post/windows.cropped some off the bottom selected the blackboard and increased the contrast finally changed the mode to lab color and sharpened the lightness channel about 500% returned to RGB and reduced the image to 690 pixels on the long side.
              I think it looks quite real.

                Excellent job Hans!. You do seem to have quite a big workflow to achieve the result. I'd love to have a crack at it, if you don't mind sending me the original? Email will be OK.

                  Done! But 960 pixels.

                I had a play and here is my workflow. This is only my way and others will probably do it differently. I have a "Subtle Shadows Adjustment" action on my website on the "Enhancing Actions" download button. It works by tapping "F3" on a selected layer as many times as you like until you get the desired look. F3 can be changed or removed as you wish by editing the action options. (Clicking on a blank part of the action title, will bring up the options dialogue box). If further explanations is needed, let me know

                3: New layer of the "Bistro now Open" sign. This will just brighten up the wording a bit.

                    Very frustrating I think I will start replies in a text editor and cut and paste them (auto save just came on but you can't use it as it jumps to another part of the site when it comes up after you reopen)

                      I use a text editor for most of my posts or replies if it's more than a couple of lines. Makes it easy to find at a later date - I use the same file and just add as I go.

                    I have lost the thoughts I had from the previous lost postings. I do like the result I got on the light boxes.I like the paving on your edition. There are a number of different ways to achieve the result fun isn't it?
