    That is definitely different!

    A nice B & W conversion.

    Am I right in thinking you've used 'Burn Edges' rather than 'Vignette'? If so, something worth experimenting with is the 'Transition' slider to avoid a hard edge on the burn. With 'Transition' you can get it to blend-in so that the end result is a much more subtle and not so obvious ... if that is the effect you want to achieve.

    With 'Vignette', I also find that less is often more. Unless it it is what you really want for artistic reasons, going with a larger 'Amount' tends to make it very obvious. Whereas a lesser amount, but working it with the 'Circle/Rectangle' and 'Size' slider can often achieve a more subtle result.

    We have a place in Auckland, NZ who have an old Russian MiG fighter Jet on their roof just like this helicopter.
