One further comment: whenever I find these overly bright and sometimes almost neon colors showing up on the screen, my over-riding tendency is to soften them. My thinking being that they are so obviously the result of computer manipulation. Well! It just hit me today that, hey, the computer is the tool I'm using. Why feel so apologetic? Why not go with that color intensity, stop trying to make the results look like something else, and see where they lead, in and of themselves? So "The Pianist" is my first deliberate leaving alone of colors I would have usually changed or at least softened. I think they could grow on me.
