Seems you couldn't have done much more with the photo. I never know if people have a knowledge of DPI, file size and other bitmap (photo) properties and limitations.

Regarding patched up guitars, Have you ever heard of Seasick Steve? Do a search on 'seasick steve guitars'. Surprising what guitars can be made of. smile.png

That's pretty good coldfeet, considering a lot of the colour in that scene would be fairly much the same. Lots of green for sure. There's always room for tweaking in photos and sometimes it's a job know when its as good as it will go.

The trouble with that some of the scene is in bright sunlight and the rest in the shade. Darkening the light part and brightening the dark part is the best I can do ..plus a bit of general toning and enlarging.
