Don't blow the highlights and preserve detail in the shadow

Thanks Bob. Good for me to see what you see. But, for my eye, the transition between darks and lights is too abrupt and obvious. I am trying to learn how to make the transition smoother and more subtle and am working with the new gradient tool in Lightroom Classic but success comes slowly. Chuck Hacker put me on to it.

I really like this, I might crop a little off the top and bottom, but it's a personal thing. I really like the experimentation too. Neat! S-
