Perfect!!

Love the simplicity. And the extreme sharpness and appears to have a touch of 'orton effect' added as well??

To Bruce

Thank you Bruce.
Yes, I am very pleased with the result. At first I set saturation to -70 and then - I donīt know if you are familiar with Lightroom ? - I moved Clarity-slider left to decrease clarity and give photo a slight soft focus effect. After that and after framing and resizing I sharpened the photo to achieve a contra effect to that softening. The result was a "Zenlike" "soft sharpness" or "sharp softness" ;)

Hello Pekka...

I am not familiar with Light Room, but it does look like the 'look' that we used to get in the analog days using the Nikon Soft #1 filter. I still have mine (have owned it for 30+ years).

Well Done!!

Thank you!

Thank you Jes.
Sometimes it is interesting to try a different approach and at the same time try to
use the full potential of PP techniques.
