Way-hey! Massive thanks to Lynne(Joyce) and Quoise for their User Awards on yesterday’s upload Grin And thanks, everyone else, for the great response. Totally unexpected Smile

Mike (oldgreyheron), in Comments yesterday you said, “I cannot quite work out where you went from image 2 to the others…”…so I’ve uploaded a V5 for you in yesterday’s upload. It’s the crop I did from the original. From that crop, the versions were created.

Alrighty, people…something simple here from the garden. I took a pic of this orchid last November and decided to mess about with it today. Using the Pinhole filter in the Olympus RAW software.

Early night tonight (just past 11pm over here) so I’ll catch you all tomorrow Smile

Andrew - that's a beautiful orchid and in my ignorance I don't know what the pin hole filter has done but it looks very good! Grin

I love the focus on the centre of the flower, the colour and the angle but I really, really want to see that bottom petal and I want to see it go over the frame. I've done a mod that achieves this but you haven't enabled modifications - aaaaargh!!!

A really beautiful image has grown from your 'messing about', Andrew..!
I guess you must have a fairly constant temperature in Singapore, to grow Orchids in your garden?
