Re: help with this one?

Is there a trick for getting the sunburst to look so clear and sharp?

Hi, Jared!

Thanks! I'd like to say there was, but really, it just got more defined as a happy accidental side-effect of using the "darken/lighten center" NIK ColorEfex plugin. The NIK plugins use control points to include/exclude effects at various points, which is a whole lot easier than making and applying a mask--at least to me, because I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, nor the most precise. Anyway, it's a beautiful photograph to begin with. I hesitated to do anything at all to it because I personally loved the look of the RAW file straight out of the camera. But thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you liked the interpretation.
