About the Image(s)

I gave this simple zinnia a little "zest" by taking it into Topaz AI and using one of the presets. Adjusted the slider and added a vignette. Including the original for comparision.

I like the vignetting as it keeps my attention at the center. I'd like the image more if the red were less powerful. It hurts to look at. It appears that the red is blown. Perhaps it is not blown in the original raw file, and if so, processing so as to retain more texture in the petals will give the image the appearance of being sharper.   Posted: 08/04/2020 10:22:07

Thank you for the comment, Robert. I can't disagree with you. I think I did over process this, now that I look at it again.   Posted: 08/04/2020 12:23:53

your photo grabs the viewers attention and lovely, no distractions but might be a bit out of focus.   Posted: 08/04/2020 16:19:00

Beautiful colors I like the color of the original better, but I like the vignette I agree that it is a little soft The original seems sharper   Posted: 08/04/2020 17:21:59

I do not know what to say, for me the flowers never take a picture from the top, a little angle will help, it is looks flat 2 dimensional. I tried to add something it is for you to decide.   Posted: 08/04/2020 18:04:14
