Chris, not working for me because of the two petals that have a shadow area, they look like eyes and are drawing attention away from everything else in the image.

Version 2 much better Chris.

When selling as you know silly things like this can totally put off an audience and you may never know why Smile

V2 is trumps, but V1 has a quirkiness about it that i like, superb joint project.

You and Allie make a great team!!!This is just beautiful, Chris.
I tried using another photo as background for a floral shot and it worked well --- thanks for sharing your idea.
Cheers, Mac

a beautiful image Chris, love the background. I don't have a problem with the 'eyes', that's how the flower is and in the large version you can see it's a gradual shading in from the surrounding petals,

This works well - I play with flower pictures sometimes and when it comes out well I never know how I arrived at the final result!!! It is rather addictive and, of course, time consuming!

Hi Chris - V1 is tops for me. On my monitor I can see the shape and shadow of 5 petals and this gives the image a little more shape than the amended V2. SmileExcellent b/ground btw.

Tastes are definitely different. When I opened the large version, I thought, "how nice, this one is watching me"... I really do like that little face!
