Lesa comment: My favorite quote is the way you say "Heck no" But after using Lightroom for years, (and even taught) I've learned several NEW tricks. 1: to clone something w/ the spot remover is GREAT. 2: the A & B setting on the brush and fixing the sky w/ HSL are great fixes!!!

Congratulations to all our winners!
