Hard to reprocess an image and make it look a LOT better when you already have a Great image to start with, but I do see the reprocessed image is slightly Sharper and Cleaner. Looks like a Winner to me Fred. Best of Luck in the Contest.
Yes, definitely looks sharper Fred. Wonderful shot.
Teh reprocessed image is too dark for me
Congrats on POTD Fred.
