Wow! This image is so sharp it almost doesn't look real. The colors are bright and vivid. The diagonals of the leaves compliment the composition. You have properly faded the focus with a nice background bokeh. To me the cloning out of whatever was in the background has left a strange mixture of bokeh and a blurry "Thingy". Where do you find all these exotic flowers? Nicely done.   Posted: 08/06/2019 16:01:22

Thanks! That blurry "Thingy" drove me nuts when my repeated attempts to clone it out didn't work and I finally gave up. I just now tried again with no success.   Posted: 08/10/2019 11:43:59

Been there, done that, feel your frustration and can do without the t-shirt. Nothing will drive me nuts quicker than a great picture with just one thing that I can't get to go away.   Posted: 08/10/2019 13:05:09

Beautiful image with a very sharp focus and rich colors. The pink and green compliment each other well. I agree that the vegetation in the upper left hand corner might be better off eliminated.   Posted: 08/07/2019 07:53:15

The colors are great the pink petals support the green. Your depth of field is very good. You may not have gotten this shot with a shallow depth of field macro lens. I keep a collection of green backgrounds for cases just like this.   Posted: 08/16/2019 06:42:09

I think this is absolutely a great image. I really don't have anything more to say about it because it's all been said. Thank you for such a pretty picture   Posted: 08/18/2019 00:06:20
