    the colours in your pictures are always great, really vivid, sharp and contrasting.

    the paterns on her dress stand out beautifully

    did you do any editing around the face area?

    Dang! I am so cold busted! Yes, there was this pole that looked like it went right through her head. I tried to be really cool about it and spent a LONG time trying to fix it. Maybe it would have been better off being left alone.

    Thank you for the nice words.

    Sorry elsaspet :( i wasnt sure to be honest, i thought it might have been the lay of the leaves in the background.

    If you used the clone tool to do it, sometimes it causes a repetitive patern, making it look a little bit more noticable.

    Have you tried the patch tool for this?, you might get better results

    aside from the editing issue (which doesnt look all that bad, just us photoshop users can spot it :)) it is a BEAUTIFUL shot. nice timing and exposure. great capture!

    Is that in CS? Sorry, I'm still studying. (I have about 5 huge books and I read at lunchtime)

    its also in PS7.

    you done a good job though, and it in no way detracts from a beautiful picture

    Thanks John. Of course my hubby and I went right away to look for it. We don't have a handle on it yet (for sure!) but it seems to be a very cool tool. Thank you so much for pointing it out.

    once you get to grips with it, it's a great tool
    Especial good on the random patterns like the leaves in the background of your picture.
    You can play around with the "source" and "destination" options at the top depending on what is best for your requirements.
    Just draw around the area you want to edit and drag it to the area you would like to replace it with. It will blend in the edges/seems for you
