About the Image(s)

Specs: Samsung A13 Smartphone, f1.8, 1/60s, Handheld, Natural Light

Captured at a local hardware store. Brought into Photoshop, selected out the flower, did a content-aware replace of parts of the background, added clarity and reduced the saturation of the pink in ACR, cleaned up some spots of dirt, and did some targeted Dodging and Burning to try and add more dimension. Suggestions?

A good idea to crop in and also remove the background distractions. Unfortunately the flowers are a little soft. Your point of focus appears to be the gap in the middle with the stems, which are further back than the flowers.   Posted: 05/12/2023 02:47:56

Here's a redo of the image. Hopefully it's a bit better.   Posted: 05/27/2023 11:24:15
