Ready 2 Print?

Hi Mark,

thanks again for your detailed instructions. It worked really well and was pretty fast and easy. I select the foreground and made a new layer via copy. Then used the dodge tool on highlights. Later on I set the layer to 36% to make it look natural.

Additionally did I clone out the very dark clouds. This was a lot of work. I had to use healing brush and so on to get it looking good. The very dark clouds were not so dark in the original version and looked not natural anymore. I think the sky is yet not perfect in the cloned out area but I can't get it any better.

I also went into Capture NX2 to use the U Point technology to make the sky a little darker and more saturated.

I think this is the Pre-Print Version. Just sharpening and proof editing left. What do you say? anything else left to do? On what material should I print it. Any suggestions?
