About the Image(s)

Bloodroot Blossoming: This picture of the partially opened bloodroot flower was taken mid march while hiking along the Chattahoochee river. I cropped the original to emphasize the stamens of the flower that were not visible at first glance.

Nikon D500: 300mm, ISO 100, f/11, 1/320s

I like you image of the Bloodroot Blossoming. I would remove the small dark spots at the bottom of the left leaf. I put your image through Topaz Noise and sharpen and it helped the sharpness a little bit. This is what I came up with.   Posted: 04/10/2021 11:14:46

I agree to fix the damaged areas. The flower looks too grey on my computer but I am not a flower person. Is it a white flower or somewhat grey?

Thank you Stuart. De noise and Sharpen did help the image. I debated about removing the dark spots but in the end left them there thinking it is the wilderness. The flower does look better without them.   Posted: 04/10/2021 15:51:41

I agree with removing the dark spots. I would crop out or darken the background in the lower right corner. Topaz DeNoise AI and Topaz Sharpen AI nearly always improve a photograph.   Posted: 04/11/2021 20:56:30

I like your subject. I do agree to remove the dark spots on the bottom left. The repetition of the shapes of the leaves add interest and impact. You might pop the orange just a bit. I'm not sure you need all of the negative space on the right side of the frame. The composition is a little off balance. However, you will lose some of the flower if you crop. I would play around with it. Have fun. Very nice image.   Posted: 04/17/2021 14:34:52
