|Altered Image #1|
I read Niek's post and thought I'd just see if I could remove the dust spots he mentioned using spot healing brush, also got rid of plane trail which you may or may not have liked. So anyway, I managed to do that and then thought I should do something more substantial! Using the shadow/highlight tool I increased the shadows by 30% and highlights by 3% to get some more detail in those pebbles and to reduce the darkness in the top right corner.
I then made a copy of the sky and ran it through Neat Image to smoothen it out some more. Flattened and that is all!
Hope you like the difference,
All the best
