soft yellow

Beautiful exposure and DOF Rita! I like your BG too. Don't know if it would be an improvement or not, but I would like to see just a vertical flip on this to see if it is any better. Wonderful shot. #1182591

This is lovely Rita. I agree with Michael that it might could benefit from a flip. Also think just increasing the brightness a touch would help this flower pop and really sparkle. What a lovely capture. #7962096

Such a soft pretty light, but I'm going to say the composition is off for me. Do you have anymore with this image to work with or is this straight from camera? A flip may improve this a bit, but I'm not sure it will be a fix. Such a pretty color of yellow/green! :~) #7962497

Hi Rita! I love the yellow, and I think the comp is interesting... not sure about the top of the comp, but I really like the dark corner on the bottom right! And it is different being upside down - that is cool! #7963538

Michael and Christie is sooo...great to have you back, you have been missed. I have attached a pic with the certical flip and I curve adjustment enhance the monochromatic contrast to brighten the flower. I tried it several different ways and this seem to work best. Aimee I took 4 shots of these flowers and they are all pretty much the same. they were hanging down. So let me know what you think. Thanks Debbra sometimes we just need to do something funky. #7964448

ok I can't spell, I wish we could go back and fix our mistakes. vertical flip not certical. my finger get ahead of me and I need to check my spelling before hitting the send button. #7964459

Aimee C. Eisaman level-deluxe 9/20/2009 8:54:44 PM

Your adjustments really make it pop more and I do think the flip helps, but I still think it needs more on what is now the bottom. It's kinda like your main subject is clipped. The stamen lead me right off the edge of the photo. Thats why I was asking if you had anymore to work with. :~) #7964469

Michael Kelly level-deluxe 9/20/2009 10:17:58 PM

Thank you Rita - I missed you guys and have a bad case of computer with drawl, but am making up for it with my new machine.

I think this is a great improvement, but I now see what Aimee is saying. If you had just a touch more to work with and moved your crop so that a a touch of petal would stop your eye at the bottom of the revised photo it would help the comp. #7964572

Rita K. Connell level-deluxe 9/21/2009 5:34:10 AM

it was worth a try, I love the colors of these flower, but I must have shot four continuance shot they are all exactly the same and decided I couldn't get a good comp on it and stop. thanks for all the input. #7965778

Vicki Snow level-deluxe 9/21/2009 10:25:26 AM favorite color...really like the flipped version..but as all have said it looks like the bottom is missing...any way to go reshoot? #7967083

I like the softness of the background and I believe that I like it better BEFORE you flipped it. Just traditional I guess. The yellow tones are perfect. #7967264
