Scot, I much prefer this colour version. What did you do in pp to bring out those beautiful colours?

My only suggestions... a little light reflected into the bottom right flower would have helped this one (and maybe.... a bit more forward focus).


Overall... I like the composition. I like the contrast of the white and blue sky. A very pleasing image overall.

thanks for the comments, guys.

this is one of many that i was able to make work.

though sunny, the wind was coming off the water pretty hard, so i was shooting at

around 1/220 to 400 at f/6. i wanted the shots to be crisp but i had to juggle

between an underexposed image or blur (from the wind) and some of the flowers

being blown out. it's a fine line, as i'm sure you all know.

it's been raining ever since, so god knows when i will be able to capture these again.

i do have plum and cherry trees about to bud, so i'll at least have some variety for

the next shoot.

as for the p.s.ing of the shot syd; crop, sharpen, shadow boost, very slight sat. boost
(around 7) and a run through NEAT to blend the background. i find that saturation in

shots like this have a tendency to go too warm, so i have found that a little shadow/

highlight play can give you the color boost without the "technicolor" effect.

anyway, thanks again!
