This was taken in the gardens of the Alcazar in Seville. I particularly liked the bright pink wall as a backdrop to the greenery.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my recent uploads, it is very much appreciated xx

Love the fountain but feel the green/white leaves on the right hand front spoil the overall picture
Not sure how you can tone these down
But am certain you could do something with it

Have to agree about the green/white leaves, but otherwise a super image Carol.

A lovely splash of colour, Carol..and a very nice looking fountain, too - despite the small burnt-out areas.
What you could do in PS is to paint in some colour over those bright areas. Using the Eyedropper tool, select a nearby area of similar colour, then select the Brush tool, ensuring it's set to soft edged, and change the Mode (alongside the brush size at the top) from Normal to Darken, and reduce the Opacity to around 40%, then brush over the bright areas. By using Darken, it won't paint out any details or tones that may be there. Hope this helps!

Love the composition with the left/right balance of the plants almost exactly 2 : 1, and the pinkery behind the greenery.
I need to remember TrevB's instructions for my own use!
