[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Reposted from the original which I thought was much overdone in PP. A late night session gone wrong. This is much closer to the natural version.

I watch the wonderful shots of every kind of flora and fauna pass through this site. Up till now I have never taken a picture of a flower. It's spring time here now, the snow is melting, the rain is falling, and for a few weeks there is beauty to be found.

PP crop, The sky was fading fast behind a storm. Sharpened just the flower and stems, brightened(+3), contrast(+2) and saturate(+2) to the petals to make them pop a little. This time I left the sky alone since any change I made to it affected the OOF ridgeline in a negative way. As I said it's closer to original than before.

Very beautiful ! I love the bright colors of the flowers and the DOF, the blue moutains in the BG are great. Good sharpness and details, too. Well done.

Hi Sean,
Beautiful photo with a beautiful DOV. The flowers stand out perfectly against the mountains. The gradient sky is excellent. I can understand you concern about the sharpness, but I also like the softness of it that is imo related with spring.

BTW, I am glad I could help out with the trick on the sky.

Hi Sean,
excellent shot. Very well done postwork by now.
Nothing to crop, nothing to add: perfect.
Thank you for taking me to that distant and very beautiful place I have never been before.
Best regards,
