Beach Cleanup

male-mallardFriends, this male Mallard was crusing along the edge of Lake Superior that in January is still not ice-covered.  The mallards don’t seem to mind the icy weather.  I didn’t like all the leaf debris among the ice so i deleted it with several Photoshop tools, mostly the patch and spot healing brush tools.  Sharpened with Color Effex Pro 4 detail extractor tool.  I think the image is wilder and the absence of debris is less distracting.  To each their own, til Tomorrow MJ
