To dramatise the power of the hoedown I took a tight view of this fiddler and applied soft-light blended texuturing. Previously the image was multiply blended, selectively dodged and burned, and had a motion blur applied. Numerous other minor tweaks were involved.

Exposure Time: 1/80 F-stop: f/22.0
Focal Length: 24.00

  Thank you Christopher. Salvaging "round file" shots has given me an excellent education in the use of Post processing tools. LOL. I have lots and lots of material. :o)
