    Very nice indeed, colours look good focus spot on. I get the impression the brightest highlight are just clipped. I am sure the background has been thoughtfully treated but the top 1/4 looks a little "smudgy" to me.

    Thanks for your comments , Ian and Jon , much appreciated .

    @ Ian .... this is natural light , the location is quite difficult to work with as a lot of the time it is in shade or the sun is coming from not ideal angle . Some slight shortcomings at that place

    @ Jon ... the BG is what it is , OOF smudgy stuff and does personally not bother me , But it could be all smoothed out if one wish to do so . Why do you think the HL are clipped ?? Just check the areas and the histogram ....

    Cheers Andreas

    Just check the areas and the histogram ...I did, the highlights area showing as clipped. Only tiny bits, when this happens I tend to lower a bit to avoid the appearance.

    Jon ... do not know how you check and what histogram you are using to check it .
    here is a screenshot with the histogram copied onto the image
    and even use the TK highlight /shadow warning within the CX panel .
