These are some working with new PP. Still having the photos look darker on flickr problems... Hum.

The child at full speed is a challenge.

Great pictures. I love the split tone effect, myself. #1 & 3 are my favorites.

Thank you!
And I just corrected my monitors! I made a mistake in the calibration... All done. Will fix some of these.

The child shot is great.
Minor point - it's a shame you cut off her pinky finger.

I love split toning. I do it almost constantly, even if very, very faintly.

Also, it looks like the horizon on #2 might be slightly off, bu I can't tell if it's just illusions because of the lines in the photo.

I know! It is a challenge with a running child. Had bee talking with the father for the longest time and getting an itchy snapping finger. Had the 200mm on and was rather close too. I think I just got it without the framing correction. The shot is much improve with the slight horizon fix. I went with it. Perhaps once I learn Ps better I can correct for that? Thanks for pointing it out. Keeps the eye sharp.

Dad got back late and left me a quick note saying thanks. I asked him to solicit her response. (Holding my breath).

I sometimes do that. This time I was going for a particular look. Think I dialed in another present with her photo. The horizon on 2, I believe, is right on. Tough to get a good bead on it. But I do believe I got it. Thanks, thanks for bringing it up. will check. That is part of the series for my first pano and somehow I forgot to add it (different PP of course) into it!

Thank you. Now to write the letter to customer service to find out what to do about another problem I uncovered in my calibration. At least it is correct now. Wow. I have a lot of correction to do!

Even considering that once I dial it in I can batch correct. Then I will see the photos differently and want to mess with them some more. That and my snails pace through Ps will leap frog soon and get me all into messing with them more... And there are more photos out there. Oops: Got to go.
