Terrific colour here Peter, and nice detail. Also, you've managed to fill the frame without any awkward gaps or too much out-of-focus stuff, which is more than I ever manage with my Wisteria. (which isn't properly out yet, it's waiting for the rain to stop)

Great framefilling colours, but a pitty that the focus lies on the petals at the back and not on one of the blooms in the fg.

I thought that 'I would get a little more positive response to my Lilac Image'~ Smile

Maybe,...I should have 'posted the straight macro Image'~~ Sad (Johanna would have got "her wish," for clarity & details 'across the frame,' since I used the smallest aperture on my Pro1).

However,...I wanted to "try something different." So I applied a 'film grain filter,' to give the image a 'color retro look,' and some added texturing, and, I positioned a 'soft focus filter,' in a sweet spot,...for a softer effect.

I think I will 'repost the original non-manipulated macro,'...down the line~~ GrinWink

Ciao~ Pietro
