CS5 - the new CS5 is incredible for photographers. Tons of introductory resources are available. I recommend that you take a look at Terry White's video ( to get an idea of what will be available. It's mind-boggling to me.

THANK YOU for your kind comments on my Spotlight photograph. It was quite unexpected.

Absolutely wonderful. So cheerful, those white petals brilliant with sunshine, surrounded by that deep sky blue.

These flowers wear little ruffled skirts. This image is one of those knock-my-socks-off shots for me, Jack.
And it has the final punch of that BRIGHT blue sky. Superb !!!

Gorgeous ... the leaves at the top are tack sharp, while the flower petals at the bottom look like a painting; did you do any pp work on this?

15 Apr 2010 11:29am

@Judy: I'm certain that I did, but I don't remember what; I don't think that it was anything major.
