About the Image(s)

I like the original but the blob of white on the LH side and above the centre flower bothered me and I can't seem to comfortably get rid of it so I made another image by bringing the flowers into a newly created BG. I realize that one is not supposed to have an even number of a subject but removing the flower on the L, below the darker one, gives, to my eye a static look. Used ON1 to enhance the flowers and finished with Frames 'chiseled tiny mat'

Barbara, I really like the BG that you've used for this image. The color and the fact that it has a bit of texture really set off the flowers.

The flower on the right doesn't seem to me to be sharp and I find that disturbing. Thus, I tried removing that flower and adding a tiny amount of vignetting (if that's a word). At the same time, I attempted to give a bit more prominence to the new right-most flower. Your thoughts?   Posted: 04/02/2018 10:54:11

You are probably right Oliver and you did a good job of cropping   Posted: 04/02/2018 18:17:12

I love the background you created but I have to agree with Oliver one the cropping. The three flowers are so much better.   Posted: 04/05/2018 19:11:16

I like your final image; We must remember that sometimes flowers look better using a soft focus; Your background is very nice. I might make all the flowers soft focus.   Posted: 04/19/2018 12:53:01

Barbara, I worked on the image to show the "Tulips four" in soft focus and added a vignette.   Posted: 04/19/2018 13:51:28

Barbara, I like what has been done on the photo to show only the three tulips and I much like the new B/G as well as some with the dark edges used.   Posted: 04/21/2018 15:57:45
