Had another go at getting these right and this is much closer to how my eye sees them, it has been blooming with great profusion all summer long, a sheer delight!

The color looks pretty true-to-life Jim. It's amazing how these strong colors can be so hard to get to look right sometimes.
I like the few yellowing leaves in this as they complement the purple tones.

Strong color in this image, just as petunias exhibit strong color-- like the composition and framing-- brings it all together and makes your petunias sing!!!

A wonderful depth of colour in these petunias Jim. I see you have added the colour to the frame which give a really good balance, great idea!
