Re: Editing Challenge

My third entry into this challenge (no one said anything about not having multiple entries as is not a competition!) is this time using PhotoDirector 4 for an emphasis on clarity; so I've now used all 3 of my photo editing tools for comparison. The selection features for masking are very quick and easy to use in this tool making it much nice than Photoshop/Elements for quick adjustments. Rather than go to town on the effects I processed this as I would any picture of mine to bring out what was in front of the camera. The focus here was on bringing out the detail in the castle by using the clarity slider local adjustment on a castle mask. Global adjustements were just tweaking overall colour and brightness to taste with a slight reduction on clarity mainly to soften the wall at the front of the graveyard.
