Re: CC on my Flowers Please

Hi Carol - Nice subjects. I like the first one best, then the third, probably because of the way the lighter flowers are set off against the dark background.

I hope you don't mind but I played a little with the first one in LR to maybe make it 'pop' just a bit more. Used some 'curves' and 'clarity' to add a little contrast, 'vibrance' to bring up the beautiful yellow a touch, and the adjustment brush in the upper bright areas to tone down the close-to-blown-out areas after I worked on it (maybe a little too much). Looking at it again now I probably should have added a little luminosity to the yellow.

This effect might not be what you were after, and the original was much closer to what you were looking to convey in the first place. Only the photographer knows that. Just thought I'd throw out an option.

I'll delete these photos from my computer when done.
