    We are all different I guess and use whatever we need to get the job done. I'm sure you're very happy with CO so that's great. I never use Lightroom so most of my work is done with PS. I'm used to it now and can do most things pretty quickly. I do a lot of posters, ads and flyers too, and I love the power and flexibility that PS has for creating brilliant text effects for that type of design. I've been using PS since 1992 so I can't see me changing any time soon. I designed the promotional posters (super large) for a very popular UK artist named Simon Goodall, who performs Cliff Richard concerts so that was a "feather in my cap" moment. I do black and white colourisations as well which PS is brilliant for.

    I buy the perpetual license for Capture One. It does everything that I used Lightroom for and most of what I used Photoshop for. I find the performance a little better than with LR and I like Capture One's sharpening and noise reduction tools a bit better.

    Thanks David. I was 50/50 on that branch and decided to remove it because it looked as though it was coming from the birds back, but I know exactly what you mean. Easy to pop back in, I used masks in Photoshop. Is CO better than PS? it looks more expensive for subscription software.

    That looks pretty good. Personally would have kept the main branch the bird is sitting on. Still need to practice with the healing mask in Capture One.

    Something like this? Cleaned up branches, curves adjustment with luminosity mask on the darks and a crop.

    I attempted a clean up of the branches but couldn't get it to look right. I did however, tighten the crop to remove the grasses from the right hand side of the image and made a few more adjustments.
