White Tulip revised

By HelenHiggs
Following yesterday's comments about the leaf (something I saw as soon as I had uploaded it), here is the same image with thin frame

If I had uploaded it against a different coloured background it would have had the same effect.

Border patrol - one of the golden rules of every composition!

It does look better with the frame, more complete, planned.
If you have the clone tool though it should not be difficult to add the missing leaf tip, it just needs a bit more canvas space on the left. Aha, modifications are enabled!

Mod added - I added space on the left, cropped on the right, then cloned in the tip. I lightened the tip slightly, in line with the light on the original.

The mod makes all the difference to this.

I prefer it with the tip. I'd missed off the original tip because it had brown edges but maybe it would have been better to have captured it and tried to clone out the brown. At least I'd have had the choice.

I will try to do the same edit so I can call it my work Smile. It will be easier because the fade was a vignette I added.

Also, this image has been straightened. The original is tilted against the side of the vase (still with missing leaf end although a bit longer). I prefer it vertical because that's how tulips grow, but I could upload another version tomorrow if anyone's interested

The missing tip as replaced by Moira does really complete the picture, also as it's quite small, making room for it it does not change the balance of the composition too much. Much better I feel, but I like the original very much even before the little improvement.
