Any ideas?

Hello Mark, Not quite sure about what looks "good" or not but you may want to try messing with the color ramps and settings. I created a two part tutorial that's on You-Tube that may be some help. Here's a link to part 1,

part 2 explains more about adjusting the settings. You can find all my tutorials under deepfriedectoplasm on You-Tube. Hope this helps.


I know alot....but not as much as the other guy.
