Art, I prefer your original picture if it is cropped from top, left and right. It has recorded details of the leaves, pleasant colors and perspective.   Posted: 06/09/2020 15:15:08

Your original is lovely but I love the screaming colors of this one. One thing I know for sure, I'll never get close to matching your creativity or talent.   Posted: 06/12/2020 16:58:40

Art as well as other I prefer the original image. I do not have any appetite for image elaboration. I'm an old fart photographer from the era when we used to take picture with shoe boxes, I like simple think. Infrared images are good in some situations, but not always. In this picture you gave away composition that it detracted some points for a perfect image.   Posted: 06/22/2020 12:22:44

I understand and respect your point of view. I think of the image captured by my camera as a starting point to create something different that expresses my reaction to the moment and with the use of PS and other tools to show my interpretation, to push boundaries and to explore other visions and realities.   Posted: 06/22/2020 13:08:34

Art I love when you take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. This is one of those times. The colors are WOW!!! The blue tinge on the water lilies is electric! And after first seeing this great fun photo you then added the original.
So here is how I might have dealt with your original. Hardly fun at all. I took out all the black spots, cropped and sharpened. Your colorful vision is a great result of pushing boundaries. Well done.
