I love the flower but I think it needed a bit of work so I made some changes and wonder what you think. First, I sharpened the flower using Topaz Studio 2. Then I closed out all o the white "fluff" as I found it a distraction and a a final step, I cloned out the yellow leaves on the upper right using content aware fill. What do you think?   Posted: 03/02/2023 15:46:08

Just popped over you your group and enjoyed Pinaki's lovely image. It lends itself to lots of options, but your edit has me wondering how you got the background in the upper right to have that look? Thanks   Posted: 03/15/2023 21:56:24

Hi Pinaki, The colors and the idea of this image is good but there are a few things that need to be fixed. The hot spots in the background are very distracting, a few of the petals need to be toned down slightly and the two parts of flowers in the top right need to be removed. Never want a part of anything in your image. Bev's edit was good but it still needs a little more. Could be a great with a little work.   Posted: 03/03/2023 16:41:21

Hi Pinaki, I think Bev and Tom said everything I was thinking. It is a good image, just needs a little work.   Posted: 03/17/2023 07:56:37

Beautiful flower portrait. I agree with Bev about the bright areas and the bits of petals in the top right. They are a distraction, but not too much. What distracts me more is the flowers being cut off on the right and left.   Posted: 03/19/2023 15:58:27
