Default too much PP?

tell me what you think. The original shot looked far too busy with all the stems and flowers so heavy pp was done to make the photo pop and bokeh shine through.

Is it too much pp?


C&C please





thanks for looking

I don't think it's too much. You've done a good job of making it look natural, so you should be very happy with it.

I agree. Doesn't look overdone to me. I like it a lot.

I mentioned in another post that I was finding a renewed interest in the art of photography by pushing the basic processing, levels, saturation and sharpness, to "over the top" amounts. I think that willful overuse of PP to produce tacky results are rampant, but this is not one of them. You have done a masterful job in this example, well done.

Hi NMR,

I've always been amazed at what can accomplished in PP. As time goes on, more stunning software products for this purpose become available. I always apply some PP, and have now qualms about it, so maybe I don't have the best perspective from a purist photography standpoint.

That being said, I think the image is excellent, and well within bounds.
