Very well cleaned up in v1, Carol, although I think I prefer the natural background in v2 which is nicely out of focus.

V2 for a vote from me ....

A glorious close up Carol! I assume it is the same image but with a different background for V1?
Both are superb!

A beautiful natural wildlife/insect image, which for me ticks all the right boxes, and so many more. My vote goes to Version 1.

Regards Nathan
Both are good but personally I prefer V1.

A stunning capture, Carol, and though you've done an excellent job on the background in V1, I think the more natural looking V2 works best for me Wink
