Request for the permission to include your Ladybug actions in our book.
My name is Yoshi Matsusawa of Frogdesign, Japan. I'm writing here to ask you for your permission to include your Ladybug actions in the book we are currently preparing to be published by MdN Corporation, Inc. in Japan for graphic designers and artists. In this book, we don't just list actions but show the readers actual art samples which are composed using the actions in effective ways. The book is accompanied with DVD-ROM which contains fonts data and graphic art materials used in the book.
Please note; 1. We would put author's name and the site's URL in the book. 2. We'd like to know if commercial use of the Ladybug actions is allowed. 3. What are the conditions for the use of photoshop actions - 5Ladybug actions if any, like the users need to include the credit in their works and/or need to contact the author? 4. Please provide us your mailing address if you wish to receive a copy when printed.
We would appreciate your consideration and cooperation very much. Please contact me regarding this matter.

I like the original. It has a very obvious contrast with the ladybug to the rest of the surrounding image. I feel that the color balancing diminishes the contrast of the original. Also, the three different ones lose focus on the primary subject which I assume is the ladybug. Very beautiful shot nonetheless but it's good to take into consideration whether the changes you make will lose the overall intent of the shot.
