I use Photoshop Elements' idiot features to do a quick clean up of my shots.
I hear you on the editing time.
Kills me....auto clean the photo and then compare the orginal vs. the cleaned up one to see which one is better.
Toss out the bad ones.
Which shots tells the story better than the 2 shots before it.
Pain in the butt to get done, but I love the results when it is finished.
Anyway, thanks for sharing....always nice to share the adventure with others, especially considering all of the work you have put into your website.
Suggestion, if you don't have it.....put in a slide show feature for your photos.
