There is a lot of detail in your flower, and I like the way your background texture is vignetted. I wonder if the background texture might be a little overpowering though as it is almost competing with the flower. Did you try it being a little blurred so that the flower stood out more?   Posted: 05/01/2021 19:27:50

Beautiful textured image. I would brighten the flower just a bit. Love this!

This is excellent. Tulips get better as they get older (photographically anyway). I like the image, the treatment and particularly the texture.
I thought it would be better with a little more contrast and texture (using ACR) then brightening the yellows (with selective color).   Posted: 05/06/2021 15:36:46

I love the original image for its delicate color and beautifully photographed details. The blossom's color in the final version is much more dramatic in comparison to the background, but I'm much more attracted to the original because it feels more "pure" and unmanipulated. The texture seems to have flattened the lovely original depth of field too. I played with your original a bit, just to see where it would lead me. I think your final version is lovely and you processed it beautifully.   Posted: 05/08/2021 14:03:25
