The colors of the flowers and leaves are soft and calming and not overly saturated - I like that. I see you used a flare filter which connects the sunlight on a few of the leaves to something. A couple of questions: what mm lens did you use? Also, did you masked out the original background and layer in a solid black layer?   Posted: 05/10/2022 23:25:43

Dave said he used a filter in Topaz so I suspect he did the work in Topaz (such as background removal and or changes). Topaz Studio has the ability to let you modify your photos to your heart's content. The unfortunate piece is the software is no longer supported by Topaz Labs.   Posted: 05/11/2022 12:16:14

Bright and cheerful!! Don't know if the "flare" was needed because the flowers are lovely on the blue background. I think the flare could be toned down a bit but a nice photo never the less!   Posted: 05/20/2022 11:21:27

I did mask to a solid black layer in the original. I was using my 24-105 lens.   Posted: 05/21/2022 07:54:33

I am not familiar with a "breakthrough" filter or Topaz studio so cannot comment the results. I do like the focus, lighting and color on the lower portion of the flowers. The black/blue background works well with the pink of the bouquet.   Posted: 05/23/2022 17:08:13
