How do you do it? Each day I think that your image is the best yet, and then the following day you excel again! This is awesome.

@martie: Thankyou for your kind comment. the original photo was quite flat, as it was a plain grain day when I took it. The result you see has had some PP in Photoshop, where I narrowed the contrast range (drawing in the tone sliders in Levels), increased the colour saturation (using hue, saturation command), a tiny bit of sharpening with unsharp mask, and then completing the image with the dodge and burn tools. I am aiming for a more graphic textile type of effect, so the final result (not the one shown here) is being aimed at creating a print on cotton and other cloths, so it will eventually have the dry brush effect added.
Very impressive. Beautiful contrast and colors.
