Nicely captured trio Ann, my favourite has to be V2 as V1 looks to be oversharpened as signs of fringing on the flowers and harsh whites
V2 has good composition and exposure spot on. V3 looks as though it was shot through frosted glass.

Just shows you don't need an all singing & dancing camera to get good pics! Still prefer yours though, Ann, and V1 has to be my fave Smile

You should be proud that your husband has watched and learned from your own hobby. Your own image here is very nice too Ann, a fancieful flower with a wonderful display.

Thats a rather nice bloom from the old conker tree.

I like what you did with V3, it looks almost like a painting.

On looking at the 3 images, V2 is by far the better of the 3. V1 appears to have stamens floating around at the top, possibly picked up whilst cloning. V3 looks like a type of painting and no definition. V3 looks very natural, but was not taken by you.......interesting....yet this has 52 votes which baffles me why... I see this on here and do not understand it. Surely the votes are for merit or what.
Sorry if I come across frank, I am new to here and want to learn from others.
