A nice starter cropped very effectively so well worthwhile, but there is so much more that can be done to enhance this image, hence my mod. IMHO the turquoise background is rather distracting, the insect is not distinct enough to add to the image, and the scarred petal benefits from repair. It also needs sharpening. All of this done and with better presentation, it is a fine image.

Has the makings of a good flower shot.

With a Rose, it often the cenre thats the focal point, so with this shot, you can crop away all of the surrounding area completely, aand be left with a very nice composition with the bud as the focal point.

next rweak, - its over saturated, so tone it down, - I used -17 in Photoshop.

The centre of the Rose is shaded due to light coming from the side, so brighten it a little.

Finally, - its not sharp enough, so apply some sharpening. I used Smart Sharpen, radius = 0.7, amount = 45%. You need to remember to check you re sized image before you upload, and sharpen it as needed.



Hope the mod illustrates what I mean,



Regards


Willie
