I've rarely spent more than a half an hour on a single image., More than that, and I begin to lose interest. My hat's off, though, to those of you who really roll up their sleeves and work them over.
Since I started visiting this site a while back, I've picked up some brilliant techniques that don't require a lot of time at all – exactly the stuff I've been looking for, to create dramatic improvements without incurring permanent eye strain.
