I received so many helpful tips on this picture that I applied them all and came out with a much better result. Here it is.

What a gorgeous shot Lori! I love how you kept the flowers so colourful, yet in matches the overall yellow/orange tint. I especially love the petals in the water! Great job! #238221

Thanks for putting it back up! I see the difference! I like this one better! Boosting the contrast was a nice touch! We are sure to see this again! Great Job! #1285236

Melissa L. Zavadil April 23, 2005

Now that I am looking at it I think that I know why this made a big difference. It made the black line that leads up to the back of her dress much darker and more noticable. It also matches her hair and now forms a slight line that leads the eye from one corner of the frame to the other. (Just my thoughts out loud :) ) Great Job! #1285241
