    For me, it would look fine without the vignette. But I've never been over keen on that method.

    Hi Griddi,

    Not bad, but I'd love to see it level and perhaps with the Black point raised a little more (I know you won't want to lose the 'dreamy' look though)

    This screen snip should, if the shot were level, show the tip of the real petal case and its reflection both on the vertical right hand edge of the snip.

    Hopefully that'll also demonstrate how, in PP you can check and fix such things while cropping, needs a bit of "anti-clockwise".

    Cheers,

    Thank you Geoff for looking and comment, usually I stear away to vignette a photo, but in this instance, I wanted a dreamy soft look......

    Very very nice. I was going to say bring out the reflection a bit, but that is already done with the edit.

    Nicely done.
