This has that classic Potra look, Marian. Really lovely near abstraction.

Thank you Herman, being the "color man" I knew at least you would be happy with my choice.
I usually choose the wrong one according to the majority.

No doubt in my mind the mono version works best. A very good conversion of a well composed image.

A very well observed, composed and captured image with great colour and detail throughout Marian with images two and three coming in after pole position.

I am glad that you get that impression, Richard. I had a hard time choosing between two versions and picked this one because of the shadow of the upper leaf over the other. It gives depth to the image.Smile

Normally b&w would get the nod from me, but with this, v1 captivates. I feel I could crawl under those leaves and hide, there is space in behind them.

A really lovely composition Marian and your processing from V3 to V1 and V2 is excellent.
I do love the vibrant green but the mono is superb also.
One of your best.
