Hi Henry, these are very good photos. Thanks for sharing these.

Thank you.

A suggestion if I may.. I understand the conditions appear overcast which, to me, the photos appear to need a touch more light.

I simply use FastStone to auto correct the colours (usually works well) and brightneing the background levels a touch. - a mere 10 points or so.

This has the effect of brightening the image to give it a bit more "pop" but doesnt blow out any highlights or harm the image in any way.

The originals look overexposed, but in fact they occupy the range 40 to 220 (within the normal range of 0 to 256). I use mostly PSE7 'Levels'. The processed results back in PSE7 'Levels' indicate that I have stayed well clear of the highlight region.

I try and avoid 3rd party bits that work inside PSE7, with the exception of 'NeatImage'.

I may have a look at Faststone some day, so thanks.

And thanks for looking.

Henry
