Added a "Mextures" background to the flowers adjusted in Superimpose then zoomed the edges.

I am especially liking the zoom effect on the edges and the angle you took on the subject. Never heard of Mextures, I will have to check that out.   Posted: 11/12/2020 09:45:38

The Mextures background and the zoom effect have created more impact to the image. I feel that the flower arrangement is not well balanced since there is a gap on the top right corner (missing one flower?) and 2 white flower stems on the right side seem to be longer than the others.   Posted: 11/12/2020 15:39:11

I rather liked the off balance of the arrangement!   Posted: 11/19/2020 16:42:09

Interesting angle for the shot. Beautiful colored flowers; B/G color adds a lot to this image.   Posted: 11/12/2020 16:04:17

You've turned a static top-down image of a bouquet into an ever-expanding garden starting to take over its surroundings. What inspired you to go in this direction?   Posted: 11/19/2020 16:12:20

I quite like blurry images with a little bit of them sharp!   Posted: 11/19/2020 16:38:26

This is Gorgeous with a capital G. Like a real old-fashioned painting. My Grandma liked those types of flowers, so I could picture this hanging in her apartment. The fade-out effects of the edges really bring my eyes to the center of the subject, too. I only have one nitpick: that the darker shady area mid-upper right might be enhanced by filling it to match the rust color of the rest of the background. (Just so it wouldn't stop the eye from wondering if something had been there and now removed.) Or just clone a bit of the baby's breath from another area.   Posted: 11/19/2020 19:53:35
