Dave, I copied down your larger image for editing purposes but I have reduced my work to 70% for this display. It fits better on the screen that way. Here is what I came up with:

I like what you have done with this, but I was also curious as to what the image would look like in a b&w conversion using the NIK Silver Efex software. It produced a very nice b&w abstract.


Pierre... thanks for the encouragement

Shawn... Great idea, please post it here in a comment so we can compare

Best Regards - Dave

Pierre Dumas
Fantastic abstract!

Best regards Dave!



Shawn, the BW brought form and shape more into play whereas the color shot accentuated the varing colors. Both interesting images and very different. Thanks for taking the time to play with this shot to see what else it can provide. Best Regards - Dave

Hi Dave,

The "soft" focus look , along with the illumination work well her.

Nice accomplishment.

Best Regards,  Mike


Mike, thanks for the comment.

LIGHT UNFOLDING Trying another way to look at roses - seeing the inner light unfold. I greatly appreciate all feedback - especially tips to improve the shot and flaws noticed Will try to reciprocate on all feedback given.
