About the Image(s)

While waiting for our transportation after visiting a temple in a rural area of southwest China, I spotted this yellow flower in front of a red wall. I loved the textures in the wall and fortunately there was the flower to add a spot of interest.

I used Highlights and Shadows to tone down the brightness of the yellow which tended to bleed out the details and added some contrast. My concern is the white flowers in front..if they are out of the window, is it better if they are cloned out?

I like the image. It has lots of interesting things to look at. I do thing the little white flowers do distract, but just a little. Some how, with the two spots on the wall, my interest somehow goes to them and not the yellow flower which I think is the best part of the image. I know it's your choice of composition, but with less wall and the flower bigger I tend to focus more on the flower. (Like this example)   Posted: 02/10/2021 18:10:56

Yes, I see your point. I don't know why I didn't see that myself. I am wondering...I never see verticals in the exhibitions; I would like to crop both circles out whereby the image becomes a vertical one but I can't recall seeing a vertical 3D image.   Posted: 02/10/2021 18:29:07

That's even a better idea. Vertical 3D images work just fine. Then you can have the tall leaves that grow from the flower base to bring one's view down to the flower.   Posted: 02/10/2021 20:03:55

The yellow flower and all the green work well against the red wall. I agree with David with the tiny white flowers taking away from the main subject, and I like the revised image he presented. Vertical 3D images depend mostly on the subject matter.   Posted: 02/13/2021 14:38:59

The foliage left and right don't add much to the overall image. Needs work.   Posted: 02/13/2021 16:52:14

Nice image. The image is sharp and has some good color combinations. In the present composition, the wall is dominating and the two spots on the wall are distractions. I too feel that a vertical composition will look better and give more importance to the flower.   Posted: 02/20/2021 01:22:51

Excellent stereo and I do not object to the marks on the wall as they form a triangular composition with the flower and as such holds the whole image as taken together. I would have cloned out the white flower   Posted: 02/21/2021 14:41:28
