Back in 2005 we went on a family holiday to France (20 miles west of Carcassonne). One evening the kids took a walk through the wheat fields on the farm where we were staying; the farmer encouraged them to pick stray wheat stems at the edges of the field which they thought very exciting. With my little Nikon I grabbed a shot of my daughter (8 at the time).
I always liked this image, the excitement clearly evident in her eyes. So it occurred to me that it might be worth having another go at improving the image in Photoshop, given I have a little more skill and experience. And I have to say the results were good, though it took quite a bit of work.
