Wow! This is really unique. I love Nastursums as well. Very very cool!

Allen, this is beautiful. I love how the yellow center is encircled by the red pedals. I feel like I am being really picky here, but I am seeing some tiny little sliver of blue in the right lower petal area against the yellow. I am not familiar with this flower, but I see it no where else, so it feels like it doesn’t belong there. This is an outstanding flora image as presented.

Magnificent. I would do a square frame with the yellow area in the center.

Thanks, Shirley. I thought I had caught those the first time around, but in correcting this I saw some other odd colors-not sure why they’re there. Here’s a re-post .

You are welcome. It wasn’t that much, so it is amazing when something so tiny, but different than the rest of the image, calls attention. Nice fix.

Allen, this is an outstanding view deep into this nasturtium. I’m thoroughly enjoy all of the “spikey bits” including the dark lines on the left.

Gorgeous colors. Love the yellows surrounded by the reds and the details of all the inner structures. Really stands out.

Allen: :thinking: On my monitor I’m not really seeing the stuff Shirley mentioned. I love the subject and all the little fine details in the center. I would be tempted to crop this to close to 5:4 to push the yellow a little away from the center and to emphasize the right to left flow of the image. Back to you. >=))>


Beautiful, Allen. I really like the original post, but I have to admit, that Bill’s crop looks very good, though the colors came back a bit gaudier than I’d care for in his version. A unique way of looking at this flower and extremely well photographed.

Stunning image. Talk about impact! No suggestions for improvement from me.

A dandy image. It a real eye catcher with those bright colors. I can understand cropping a bit differently but either way works for me.

Hi Allen,

Your original is pretty impressive, but go with Bill’s version if you like more pop. You did well coming in closer for this spectacular view…Jim
