Default Snowdrops in Chicago

Here's a shot I took of some "snowdrops" last week in the back yard of my apartment building. FZ28. I played around a bit with the luminance curve and levels in Photoscape. C&C welcomed.

Nicely done, Mike-

May I work on it a bit for you?

Thanks, Sarah! Sure, I don't have much of a clue when it comes to PP work...but I'm slowly learning. Here's the unedited (except for shrinking), original picture...

I'm not sure that I don't like the original better! I was trying to tone down the white flowers a bit and bring out more of the brown in the leaves.

I chucked it through Lightroom - believe me I'm a learner winging it...you should pay more attention to what Sarah will come up with.

Thanks, Greg. Heh...now that I'm looking at it again, I think I like my original more than either of our edits!

Well, here is my take at it-

Please keep in mind that photo editing is very subjective.

That looks really nice, Sarah. I like the way you brought out the browns and greens, and popped up the whites - without blowing them out. Thanks!

Thanks Mike, Paul, and Greg-

Even though I teach Adobe Photoshop Elements, I did this adjustment with my favorite inexpensive photo editing program, ACDSee Photo Management 2009 ($(US)29.00). It allows for smaller/finer adjustments.
