I had a number of "firsts" with this picture: my first attempt at editing in RAW - that's definitely something that I'm going to have to play with some more, as soon as I convince my camera to do it. It was also my first serious exploration of brushes, and this is also something that I'm going to have to play some more with. For all those "firsts" I'm pleasantly surprised by how it turned out: normally I don't expect much at all from a "first," but this I'm relatively happy with. Downright pleased, for a First. Even if it is slightly out of season, now that I'm finished with it.
