An excellent composition! I like the placement of all the key elements, not to mention the lush green. Is it really that green in January?!? #1061200

Karen, Pat, glad to take you to Lahore. Yes, it really is that lush, but not everywhere, March is the best time, this was a field on an unusually cool and wet day after a long 'no-rain-oh-hope-it-rains' spell. #1061321

Having checked my work, I saturated the colors in the image by +18. The original picture result however was dull and gray and the saturated result does greater justice to the lushness present on the ground that day. I also unsharped at 156, 2.4, 8, adjusted brightness and contrast just a tad bit, blurred the background trees not in normal mode but in lighten mode at 49% strength and I also admit applying the same blur on the tips of those yellow flowers to make them come up a little. So guilty as charged. Lock that boy up, I say, I say, I say...he's applied every effect in the book!!

But still glad to take you to a part of my world. Murtaza walks off to solitary confinement with his photoshop book. hehe #1061371
