    Hey all!

    Lemme know what you think!

    This wasn't staged, I had 10 seconds to setup the shot when the zoo keeper held out the tiny little fella. I'm quite happy with it.

    Hi hy,

    Your signature says you are here to learn so I hope you don't mind , if so ,I'll remove it. Just wanted to show what simple adjustments such as levels, colour and a touch of USM can do. Nothing fancy. By the way that hand has some serious character. It looks like it's been through the war.

    Hey man thats cool, all I'd done was black out some distractions in the background and a little USM, I really like what you did, I don't think I would have pushed up the reds in the hand so much but the turtle looks great!

    Thanks for the input :-D
