    I think you have done well. Subtle editing is the way to go. You have enhanced what was a good original photo. I like the darkening (burning) of the foreground grasses in particular, really makes up focus on the seat. Best way to learn is play around. Be prepared to 'undo' stuff that doesn't work though.

    i liked this photo when you first posted it .. now youve improved it again .. good job

    i like the crop in #2 and the colour management of #3 ..

    someone once told me .. " the best PPed photograph is the one that you can tell has been PPed at all .. "

    as Rick said .. subtlety is the way ..

    Great job on the edits. I really like what you've achieved. It's hard work to make a photo NOT look like it's been edited. Well done. But now for the challenge, to get rid of those distracting blue lines! Not sure what they were but they are in front of the tree.

    thanks all for your comments, i am getting much more confident with shoping the pics now, when starting its hard to tell when enough is enough, the blue lines were a plane.
