About the Image(s)

This is a photo I took last summer. I liked the complimentary colors in the photo.
I took this with my Leica v-lux.
ISO 200
F 3.4
1/60 s
I blurred the background a bit more and cropped slightly.
I added the frames in Carbon.

Lovely colourful shot of these flowers. (Osteospurnum?)
I like that you have cropped in a little and the flowers all look lovely and sharp. Also I like the border you have given the image.
The BG could perhaps be blurred a bit more as still very busy.
The main distraction I find though is that very pale petal on the lower right of the image. Would be quite easy to clone out in PS?
Great image, well done.   Posted: 01/03/2022 10:59:10

Janet, how pretty flowers are, and a great subject to photograph. I love the colors albeit a bit too strong for my taste, and the one bright petal in bottom right I would change to purple like the rest. Fun.   Posted: 01/06/2022 07:40:39

I love composition, colour's and framing, only the white flower padel attracts too much my attention   Posted: 01/14/2022 03:55:39

The colors POP and I really like your framing. My only suggestion, is if you use Photoshop or a similar software would be to tone down the underside of that petal that is so white. In PS if you use the color picker choose the purple color with a soft brush, lower the opacity or select the blend mode of screen or lighten, you may be able to recolor that petal. I really like your color combination.   Posted: 01/14/2022 13:59:21
