About the Image(s)

I took this at the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach. I was a attracted to the colors and the somewhat unusual shape of the "crown" of the flower. All I actually did to it was enhance the colors a bit.

Bev - you have captured this flower very well. Well done.

As I look at your image the subject takes up about 50% of the frame and the background over takes the flower.
Would you consider tightening up on the frame and darkening the background resulting in the flower dominating the image?.
My view is that the flower is slightly over enhanced.   Posted: 09/06/2023 02:17:46

I like your choice of crop, but you didn't enhance the image enough in my opinion. I added some clarity, sharpening, and vibrance. Thoughts?   Posted: 09/15/2023 13:13:35

I do like the closer crop but prefer a bit more contrast   Posted: 09/06/2023 05:21:41

Hi, Bev!
What a great find! I agree that the crown of this flower seems unique and captures my attention. The color values (glow of orange against the vibrant green) in your submitted image are so attractive to me. But, I find Tom's modifications help to reveal interesting details, especially in the two most front facing petals.   Posted: 09/19/2023 11:05:20

Nice image . Emphasis on color is good. I will keep the crop as it is.   Posted: 09/23/2023 09:37:37
