Well, first of all I have to admit that I rarely used Photoshop while finalizing my images in post-processing.. Lightroom was and over all may continue to be the main driver since it covers a big area of need..
Even I am open mined to learn new and understand an approach which I am not familiar with but which is been proofed by gathering the acceptance of the majority.. Hereto I may add the comment that Adobe's status is not only the outcome of their good product... The fact that not really competitive software is been offered play's a role.. I heard / read something about Affinity Designer for Vector.. A beta version is coming for Photo.. And in the blog's I read more good than bad and a huge hope is given to have a competitive software at the end on the market which does not ask for a monthly payment!
It is for sure not a secret that the core idea of Photoshop is to understand the way of working with layer's.. It takes time to catch on this approach.. At least this counts for me.. Thanks to some useful videos on youtube and DVDs explaining step by step the action and the possible usage I was able to make a start.. Nevertheless I direct speech with someone who is good in it is key.. Here I would like to link the homepage of my colleague who reserved hours for me within his free time.. But for the time being he does not have a homepage.. And I need his confirmation in order to mention his name here.. To confirm what I understood is correct and to gather some important professional tipps to solve some issues without to spend much time.. Even to understand a complexity..
Below I would like to share with you 2 photo's which is really the first one which I finalized by only using Photoshop..
Here is the one which comes stright out of my Canon 5D Mark III:
And here is the one which is finalized at Photoshop:

After years with several and rarely tries in vain to set up my homepage now here I am.. I assume the reason was both myself (with lack of time and knowledge on Wordpress) and my former web-hoster (www. celeros. de).. Thanks to Koken and my new web-hoster… Read more

I am very happy that my wife agrees that I take some of my photography-equipment with me even when we are taking our annual "Family Holiday" which is at least partly close to a beach! For sure in return she expects from me a kind of documentary photos… Read more
