Orchid Frills & Curls
Roberta, the colors are very attractive and I like how you’ve set up the curly “Y” as the focus. The transition from the subtle blue to magenta in the background looks good also. I wonder about moving the sharp parts more to the left in the frame, but that would depend on what’s off camera on the right.
I think this is gorgeous, with just the right DOF and wonderful colors. But I’m not at all sure about the bright petal in the BG, and the almost-tangent at the top edge pulls my attention. I think @Mark_Seaver has a point about moving things to the right. I took the liberty to have a play. The post didn’t have a profile embedded – my browser will assume sRGB but some might not. My version does have sRGB embedded/tagged.
@Mark_Seaver Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate what you said about moving the sharp parts to the left and may play with it as Diane did.
@Diane_Miller thank you for your great suggestion! I love the new version and will definitely try it. I’m not good at visualizing some suggestions until I actually see them, so this was very helpful.
I’m glad you like the suggestion! It’s such a gorgeous capture! I got way behind here again, too. I have to get my priorities re-aligned.
