    I shot this a while back, only today getting to post process it. I worked on toning down and desaturating the background while at the same time highlighting the flowers. C&C welcomed. Thank you for viewing.

    Good evening Joe!

    I didn't see the original so cannot comment on any improvements made.

    I think it is a lovely pic...beautiful bright, vivid and sharp flowers and a nice quiet background to show them off.


    ( is there enough play in the original to go for a square crop? )

    I like the clarity and colors of the flowers against the subdued background. You might consider cropping off the right flower and making a more vertical image, but of course that is a matter of preference that may not be appealing to you.

    Thanks Sharon, I appreciate you taking time to view and comment. Not as much feeling as your Wistful, but I like it. These were growing alongside the road in a nature preserve, loved the colors and shot the image. The only way for a 1:1 crop was to isolate two blossoms. The original with the three blossoms was almost full frame with very little cropping.

    Thanks Ken for viewing and commenting. I think you and Sharon were seeing the same thing with a square crop. Below is the square crop you suggested.
