Blue... Because I'm not sure

As always comments +/- welcome. If you just thing why put a ? I'm just trying to improve my photography so I'm not going to get upset.

Exposure: 1/350s @ f2.8

The PS stuff; cropped, sharpened using a high pass filter and I think that's it

I've include a version of the original image, so if you wish to have a play then feel free.

Anyhow, after all that, enjoy the rest of the weekend. Big smiles Smile

Lovely shot and DOF, like the soft colours. Only thing is that the pale flower on the left is kinda lost a bit in the background (i'm assuming more flowers) would stand out alot more if the whole background behind the buds and that one flower was green.

Of course I don't mind - I like the colour you've brought out. Not as I remember the scene, but it has improved the overal shot, and definately an improvement on mine. Thanks for the breakdown too.

To the rest of you guys 'n' gals - thanks for taking the time to look and comment. Appreciated.

Hi Gary, good to see you back. I like the limited DoF, focus is just where it should be and the soft colour tones work well.
