make rising spark lines stand out more?
Aug 8, 2012

I'd like to adjust this image so that the rising spark lines stand out more. This needs to be inserted into another collage image at a printed size of 3 inches high so I think the lines need to be much more bold to be visible. De-emphasizing the people in the background (so you can tell they are there but less recognizable) would be good too.

Any tips or takers on this? either steps taken or sample finished images.

5D Mark II raw file if that helps: (on a slow connection; will be done uploading in about 40 min)

Thanks!
