Thanks Leanne!!! This has to be one of my favorite images to date. I shot it yesterday. It was actually taken in macro mode and the colors adjusted with PS. I really appreciate the feedback!!

I can see why you love it so much - great image, Donna. What did you do to adjust these colors?

Great image, Donna, and a good question. What did you do to adjust these colors?

A special thank you to Laurie and Jim for the great comments. I used Photoshop to adjust the colors in this image. First, I used curves. Then I fine-tuned it with the color balance. I will enclose the original for comparison. Thanks again!!

Donna, thanks for uploading the original and for the explanation. I have never used "curves". I wasn't sure what it did. I told you I didn't know much about PS (I'm using an old 5.0 version). I think I need to give curves a try!
