Very nice close-up shot, Ann: just the sort of thing you can go back to time and again and record it's progress to full bloom and even after, as the seed head can make an excellent study in itself.

I like the way it is being "guarded", by the two OOF ones

I was seeing the same effect as Tom above, two attendants in the background. Three together always seem to work, though I'd like to see the whole of the right-hand bud.

Quite an attractive image, like Moira I would have preferred to see the whole of the RH bud.

Love it just as it is, Ann. Excellent detail, textures and delicate colours and lovely softly blurred bg tones - great exercise in focusing. You are really getting the best out of the Leica Smile

yes totally agree I realise the rule of 3 so left them all in but I was after one that being central, It was a decision to clone or not to cloneWink

Hi Ann, love the composition and defocused background! I am not sure if you have tried this following method of sharpening, it is great for buildings landscapes and busy photographs to bring out fine detail, try it.
Open the photo in Photoshop! Duplicate the layer. Go to unsharp mask and put in amount 300% radius 0.8 threshold 1 level, click OK, you are not finished.
Select Edit, fade unsharp mask, and set the mode to darken, click OK.
Then reselect unsharp mask and this time put in amount 200%, radius 0.3 threshold 3 levels, click OK now click on the eye to see how this is excellent for these subjects, it is time consuming but the end result is worth it..

Regards

Trev.

The version after the sharpening is better Ann, glad you tried it.

Bit confused on this Ann, V1 is coming up as the original and not the one that has been sharpened?
