    in my humble opinion, the petals are a tad overexposed,,, would like to see more clarity to the droplets, but overall a beautiful image.. lovely composition!

  • Thank you so much for pointing that out to me, Linda. I may have overdone the contrast by transferring the image to bw. I tried again, redid the editing en re-uploaded the file. Not sure whether this is better – what do you think?

    Yes…. much more detail showing on the petals,,,nicer tones,,,, well done!

  • Thank you! Lesson learned: Don’t try to make a white lily from an orange one in BW – and I more often than not do need feed back to see my own mistakes [giggle] – Much appreciated, Linda!
