About the Image(s)

I took this with my Nikon D7500 with a 17-70 Sigma lens at 52mm, 1/8 sec., F 6.3, ISO 640. I put against a tee-shirt background that looked terrible so I created a textured backdrop in a color that matched the softest pink of the flower and layered that behind the flower. I cropped, cleaned it up, added a little clarity and texture.
Any comments/critiques appreciated !

Donna, this image is beautiful. The background adds a softness that creates a painting like feel. I think you made a great choice with the colors as well, adding a pop to the stem. Wow!! Nicely done.   Posted: 07/11/2024 12:39:20

You are skilled with Photoshop Donna and have enhanced the flower beautifully.
Your choice of background colour is perfect and the details of the flower itself are really clear.
It's a most attractive image.   Posted: 07/12/2024 01:11:09
