    Sorry, doesn't work for me at all...the contrast is 'unusual' and very grey and undefined.

    The main petal is blown.

    I use SEP so am inerested....was it a preset? If so what?

    Sorry, just saw it was pinhole

    I like the effect on the petals and the stamen, but the effect doesn't work for me on the more background areas of the image. I would prefer that area to be much darker, rather than grey and washy. I definitely think it has potential though :-)

    Hi there.

    I have to agree with Gretchen here. I totally love this shot. It is soft, subtle and very alluring. In fact if it were in a store I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it and hang it on a wall.

    Fabulous work David

    And that's the great thing about a forum such as this where we can exchange ideas and concepts and experiment. Some will work for some people and some won't and, in a rare moment, something will work for everybody.

    Keep experimenting, everyone.

    I am sorry David, it doesn't work for me either.

    But as Donald mentioned how fascinating it is not to agree!

    Thanks Donald. Quite agree with you. Thats why I stick with CIC. Some of the best critics in the world... I have reworked the image as below:

    Lilley

    OH DAVID

    rework the original with some selective colorization --make the dark parts eggplant in color and fade the color a bit in to the midtones. . . . .maybe black/green on the edges of the leaves with a hint of green fading inward . . .

    Would be soooo cool!

    As for the spelling - No dinner for you tonight!
