Herman, I feel like confiscating your paint set, you are putting everyone to shame with your post processing skills.................. This is a master piece, Would I hang it on my wall? absolutely!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything compliments each other, the colour of the skilfully crafted bokeh along with the softness of the main subject and delicate petals, don't put those creative juices back in their box, we need to see more.
