    Tho USM is a useful tool for asharpening it can also have quite a creative use.
    I took one of my pics and went wild with the USM and boosted contrast.
    What you think?

    ...........it looks like one of Jack's shirts.........err "colourful!" /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif. No actually, the process you used is quite creative but the subject matter could be improved upon. Might be worth a try with an "urban landscape" or summat?

    Larry,

    A bit OTT for me, but then you can't use USM in the 'Wet' Darkroom just a bit of dodging and burning/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    Well actually USM was originally a wet darkroom technique - but I agree, Larry has just popped into the wrong darkroom by mistake.
