A bewautiful image of a beautiful flower, the background is a little noisy, though. I envy you living so close to the Eden Project, I visited many moons ago, and would love to see it again. Carol

Hi Diana, a lovely detailed shot and to your usual high standard, shame about the noise in the BG but you could improve this by running the blur tool set at 100% over the BG only, that would get rid of most of it,

Such a lovely capture of this gorgeous iris, Di. Regarding the use of the blur tool: you should have a tool palette on the left hand side in photoshop, two columns of tools. The blur tool is about halfway down the left column. Some of the buttons share tools, so you might find it's showing as Sharpen or Smudge. Right click on the button to select the blur tool. At the top of the screen you'll see Strength set at probably 50% - click on the arrow to open a slider to adjust to 100%. Then just brush over the area you want to blur. To change the size of the tool you can increase with this key: ] and decrease with [. Hope that all makes sense Smile.
We're going to Eden tomorrow, haven't been for ages.
Thanks so much for favouriting my latest upload!
