I think this is simply stunning - well spotted. Not sure if the crop could be different or if I'm just being fussy?

Lovely - click

I find the background too pink and too intrusive which is a shame as it's a nice image. I have uploaded my suggestion and what I think makes a slightly better picture.

I agree with Andy. The modified version is slightly better, but would it be better to go back and chop the head off the rose in the background on the left?

Thanks Andy - I agree with your comment - it has uploaded looking a little too pink. Your mod is in the right direction - however the original slide has more of a yellow hint in the background, and I feel the clour balance has shifted it a bit too far! I like your idea of adding gaussian blur.
Suzanne - Again I agree; possibly 'clone out' the rose on LHS, to leave space around the main rose? Thanks for taking time to comment

Great shot! I agree with above comments for improvement, but I still like the shot. I hope they will survive.

This is stunning. Amazing level of detail in the ice crystals. Well see and well caught. Click

yep, I think space is the thing. Am still jealous of the original shot though Smile

It's still beautiful.

The background does need attention, in the way suggested. The out of focus flower on the left is a distraction. Having said that, the image has good strong colours in the flowers and leaves, super backlighting and the added interest of frost, so it ain't all bad!

Great...I like it a lot.
Congrats to you for braving the cold to get the shot.

Very sharp picture. I like it. The light is somewhat problematic but it's great anyway. Click. Alejandro.
