    • Thanks Mark πŸ™‚ I always boost things a bit and added a gradient to act like a grad nd filter. You have spotted my bigger tweak though! Part of the sky has been radially blurred and overlayed in a new layer. I then just mask the layer, adjust transparency and paint off what I don’t want with a black brush πŸ™‚ I would have liked to have set up a long exposure on the day to get the natural movement of the clouds captured but when you’re out with others for the day they don’t always have the patience to wait for the photographer to their thing πŸ˜‰

      • Exactly……Liz is often referred to as the “camera-widow”. In fact we are thinking of getting a puppy just so she has something to keep her occupied whilst we are out and about 😊

      • Oh don’t get too lively a pup though or you’ll be missing the wildlife πŸ˜‰ Mind you, a well behaved and trained spaniel could probably help you find the wildlife! We can’t keep dogs at our flat and I do miss having them as companions indoors and out. We had King Charles Cavalier spaniels. Wonderful dogs πŸ˜€ Our cats are awesome companions but the one that goes out always shouts at me if she sees me outside! Apparently I’m not supposed to be out there when she is πŸ˜‰ Simon usually finds somewhere to sit or just wanders off when the camera comes out. He’s actually the least troublesome of all family and friends as a photo companion πŸ˜‰

      • We used to have 3 cats, but we only have Poppy left now and she’s getting on a bit now. So I’m not sure we’ll get a dog just yet, because I’m not sure Poppy will react to well. We may end up going for a rescue dog, not a Puppy.

      • Ah, no she probably wouldn’t appreciate a new doggy friend during her dotage! Cats are very particular creatures and if something is out of place it messes with their OCD. Our very first dog was from a breeder. He was wonderful and probably would have been an amazing show dog but to us he was just part of the family! Every other pet I’ve had has been a rescue. Rescues often come with particular needs and quirks but it can often make giving them a safe and loving home that much more rewarding πŸ™‚
