    Jim, is there a more handsome Drake? Debatable but I'd put this guy high up there.

    Looks exposed nicely. Appears there might be some nice details available, curious your sharpening process? Could benefit from some more as long as the RAW is sharp.

    The water too, btw, is it really that translucent teal? Quite pretty.

    Thanks Brian. I did a rework of the image adding some sharpness to the RAW file. I just downloaded Topaz AI and gave it a shot with this image. Like to know if you think this is better.
    The water is this teal color, its where a little river meets the Detroit River. Thanks for the comment and guidance.

    Jim, conventional wisdom says not to let topaz do your sharpening. I usually only set that at 1 and do the rest in PS.

    That said, I think it helped here and you did well in the RP to sharpen it up. Good work as far as my eyes are concerned!
