    Re: Some flowers

    lovely shots Abhi! I like the composition and the details!
    perhaps the #2 is a bit overexposed, -2/3 stop could let the inner part pop out more, and in the # the borders between the upper tree petals and the background seems to me not so natural... did you use a selection in that area for blurring?
    cheers

    Thank you, Nicola.

    I agree on #2. I always have trouble with saturated reds. In trying to preserve the white petals I have managed to clip some reds.

    I believe you are referring to #1 for the blur. But this is how it came out of the camera. I suspect that the yellow/orange blur is from another similar flower in the background. The effect may have been enhanced by selective contrast enhancement of the flower. Here is the image with ACR defaults:
