Workshop Note
Using AFS, 1) created layer (control J, etc.), 2) increased light using shadow/highlight feature 3) increase sharpness with unsharpen mask, 4 added mask layer to created layer that is modified by shadow/highlight and sharpening, 5) select paint brush tool with 100% opacity, 6) paint our entire layer except for stem and underside of mushroom, and 7) merge layers. None of this effects the other parts of the picture for which the mask/paint brush have removed the changes to those areas that did not need highlighted or sharpened. Hope you like.
