Hi Billy, I see we're onto plants now, instead of H & W. Nice image. Did you notice the insect in the flower? As you can see I had your image in Photoshop camera raw, HSL/Greyscale and removed all the colours except yellow. Put the image into PS and copied the background layer. Layers panel > blending mode > overlay > opacity 100%. Hope you like it.

Good to see you trying more flowers.
Getting the centre sharp is most important part.
Flowers are difficult to get sharp outside in wind.Some members have suggested using
Higher ISO 400 or more with faster shutter speed maybe 400 or more.
Bit of trial and error.
There's an awful lot to learn!
So keep at it.

Good morning Billy, how are you ?

I agree, the centre spot does make a focal point which grabs your eye, well spotted.

Billy I think it might work better if you make a square-ish crop to remove some of the background foilage as in this case to my eye's it acts as a bit of a distraction. Also alter the midtones slightly by going into "levels" and moving the middle pointer (grey) very slightly to the right, but be careful not to over do it Wink. Then using your "Burn" tool set to around 5% gentley run it around the foilage that's left to darken it a little more which will help the flower stand out more.

Take care Billy
