    Hi Jon, this is real belter IMHO, love it, well worth the update.

    Love the pose, killer backdrop and really very nice detail overall, position in frame works, albeit it needs a tad more below, colour is spot on. The transition in colours within the BKG is very sympathetic to the subject. I think having that little extra in SS has made all the difference. Overall it has a lovely delicate touch to the PP.

    Just a thought, but adding a third of a stop and a slight tweak of the Tone Curve, then adding a Curves mid tone, not Contrast, just adds a little more pop to a very cool image IMHO Jon, well done, really like it.

    Andreas yes I replied in Wildlife, I updated the Hue slider - too much magenta.

    Jon, I like the frame a lot. Even with those quirky branch stubs poking around everywhere.

    Beautiful pose and sharp everywhere.

    I was feeling it was a bit dark and Steve's RP really brought it out. I do like a touch of the contrast you provided in the OP though. A combo of the two could be just about perfect.

    TFS.
