Thanks Rick - actually the arrangement was in a particularly dark position with one spotlight shining across it from about 3/4 foot away. Did my best to recover the one rose but couldn't quite win.

Morning James ~ In a situation like this where part of an image is difficult to work with?
I always take the affected area and gently clone from a better part of the image, in this case an alternative bloom...
Use about 20/30% on clone tool to gently blend in the new layer!
Regards Rick

Thanks very much for the tip Rick - I'll give it a go....

Wonderful, I really like the first image it's great. But if I may say, I'd remove that line to the right as it proves a bit of a distraction for my liking. Otherwise I absolutely love the image it's beautiful.

What great words of wisdom you've had rea V1, which is indeed my favourite too. Really like the moody lighting, but have noted the comments above. Didn't notice the flower burn-out but certainly the line on the RH side did worry me a bit. Think it's a very fine floral image though.

Following on from the comments I have reworked V1 and uploaded it as V4.
