    Not bad at all Kevin.

    I don't normally like smoking pics, but this is an exception.

    Shame about the forehead; was it shot RAW, is there anything you can do about it in PP?

    Re: Smoker

    If using ACR, did you try wanging Recovery right over to the right?

    I know the problem, I have so many pics of blown swans, they need EC -1 at least and they always fly by when I have +1 set (and no time to change)
