Description

Putting this in DD because I changed so much. I loved the light in the original and the vertical composition but I had missed the tip of one of the main leaves and the colors were flat so . . . added canvas, cloned in tip and background, cleaned spots on leaves, played with filters to bring out details, added a color layer and blended, and I don't know what else.
