Hopefully the colors display properly for everybody. Looks nice for me in Photoshop but not as good in Internet Explorer. :-)



Anyway one of my personal favorites. I really love these challenges, wish I would have found them earlier!

Very simple, and very nice because of that simplicity. Well done!

I know what you mean about things looking just fine in Photoshop but falling apart as JPEGs. One thing I've discovered (thanks to the help of LTBerry) is to change the color space from Adobe RGB to sRGB.I've also found it necessary toincrease saturation, sometimes to a nauseating extent. Go back and forth between the PSD version and the Save For Web version until it looks close to right. That's when you actually save it as a JPEG.

This is nice. Glad you ventured here and glad you intend to stick around! It's nice and sharp. When it was loading from the top down, the white gave way to the brown background and, if that were clipped to be a panorama, that would also be interesting. And along the bottom edge, I like the way the other plants seem to be dancing along the bottom, with just their tops showing. Makes a nice border. :-)

Thank you for the tips Barbara I will have to give those a try! I'm still learning my way around Photoshop.

Thank you Monkey143! You gave me some ideas to play around with in Photoshop. I experimented with removing the plants from the bottom but I felt like the image lost something when they were removed. I struggled at first because I thought they might be a distraction but I decided the red caught my eye more. :-)

To be totally honest I'm not sure what kind of a leaf it is. It just got my eye as a bright spot of red sticking out in a field of brown.
