About the Image(s)

The original background on the right was a dark grayish color so I decided to try replacing it with a sky. I used what you see here as the original and then the more I thought about it, the less I liked the very bright lower right corner which I decided took away from the flower, so I replaced the sky with what you see as the final. Other manipulations included work on the flower itself, image/adjust/vibrance/etc. and ended with adding the stroke.

Bev, this is a really cool illustrative design!

I feel I am immersed into a land of fantasy!

However, I felt a bit more focus (or clarity) would benefit this Fantasy, so I altered the the focus/sharpness via NIK Sharpener Pro-3. (Copy and paste both onto your desktop for a truer comparison). Hope you like it ... then, time to make some Spring greeting cards with this image!   Posted: 03/10/2023 12:38:46

Nice Image. I do like the original though it seems toe the orange color adds to the rythm of the photo. Good work.   Posted: 03/16/2023 21:06:00

Hi Bev, I enjoy you image, does look like a painting. If it were mine I think I would sharpen it just a little and then call it done.   Posted: 03/17/2023 07:59:51

I like this and think it only needs a minor adjustment: apply the painterly effect to the sky, especially in the lower right-hand corner, as it's too sharp in comparison to the flower.   Posted: 03/19/2023 15:32:18

Tom PickeringI would apply to the sky the same edits as you did to the flowers before you add it to the flowers picture.   Posted: 03/20/2023 14:32:05

A wonderful picture that can be used in many places. Including a wall print. Agree with Tom, blur the sky some.
