BG too distracting?

All of your photos of Hawaii, Bill, sure make me want to go there some day. Actually been there - the airport flying to Thailand years ago. Beautiful colors and foliage. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Drool. Drool. Drool. Simply exotic beauty with gorgeous colors!! But for me, the BG could be lower contrast. Shouldn’t be impossible to mask the flowers and have a play.

Well those are cool. I’m in agreement with Diane about the bg and if you lowered the contrast it might be less eye-catching. Glad you didn’t have to go far to find something lovely.

I just had to play with this – 2 minutes of “work”. The brightness of the BG is easy to control and I just made an arbitrary choice.

Nice shot, Bill. I like this as is. I think the original BG makes the picture more vibrant and show the tropical mood better
