Not so much the aesthetics, interested in suggestion re processing and results.

Thanks,

Bob

Not sure how to comment except aesthetics. Even techniques ought to be, at least indirectly, about aesthetics. In terms of PP possibilities, perhaps a mid-tone contrast bump and some vignette and inverse vignette might select an area for special attraction?

I like the rendition - I was trying for something soft and subtle but somehow I miss the mark repeatedly. Garish and too edgy...keep on trying

Thanks,

Bob

Something with a bit more color ... played with Tritones and masking to try and get some differentiation between areas.

A little 'softer' ...

Bob,

I took a little different approach and reduced contrast for a softer image. I added a subtle canvas texture, slight sepia tone and a vignette. Barbara

Barbara, "subtle canvas texture"? Subtle? I could grate cheese with that.

Thanks to all for the 'softer' renditions. Along the lines of what I'm visualizing; I think my difficulties arise during sharpening. Might be a tonality issue too.

Or, perhaps I'm looking for something that is not there - 11x14 richness from a DSLR, which likely is a fool's errand.

A cheese grater popper into my mind and I can resist anything ... but temptation.
