That's a really nice edit. Better than my attempt. This is how we learn - or re-learn what we once knew, but keep forgetting The photograph is about the flower and the pillars - and the contrast between them. You've reduced it to that essence.


Thanks Steve. I was going to do something closer to your edit, just removing a few elements, but I kept manipulating the lighting in an attempt to provide a different point of view for the OP. If I had more time to spend on it, I think I could make it look less manipulated while keeping the focus on the flowers. It would be easier to edit if it was re-shot using some of the very good suggestions made by other posters in this thread.
