Very nice image. The sharpness and color of the lily is enhanced by the background blending of colors.   Posted: 09/03/2020 16:32:56

Love the composition of this Trout Lily. I,too, like the fading of the stem below. I know it's hard to figure out what to do with stems sometimes, but I really like this idea. Super editing!   Posted: 09/08/2020 09:29:12

Great image and background effect. Very interesting how you used such a big depth of field and then sharpened with AI.   Posted: 09/09/2020 19:42:51
