Not much sun around today, I need brightening up here - this has helped me I hope it does the same thing for you all. I took this picture before I became ill, not been out with the cam sinceSad

Many thanks for all c/c's on my previous upload - seems ages ago now but huge thanks for your encouragement and support truly appreciated. I need it right now, my endoscopy again tomorrow and my tummy full of nerves, how long this goes on for I have no idea but its taking over my life and I get worried sick.

V2 I edited for my daughter and took a person out from the left of the picture, its the best I could do and I needed to see how it looked large - think to some degree I didnt do a bad jobWink
SORRY I nearly forgot special thanks to Lillian and Gypsyman (Eric) for the UA on my last image, please forgive me I do appreciate this special priviledge

Very competently done in v2, Ann, hadn't noticed the manipulation at all. v1 has some wonderful colour in the petals. All the best for tomorrow, there's a lot of people on here wishing you well.

V1 is lovely, my attention has really gone to the technical challenge in V2 though. Can I suggest the you flip the image upside down, then clone the resulting inverted curved wooden beam in over the lower section. That would give you wood grain running at the correct angle.

And some lovely shots today, two beautiful flowers for us to gaze upon.

Version one for me, bright sharp and good colours, maybe it would have benefited from a slightly more blurred background, but that is a minor quibble.
