    Well done, Janet, I can’t choose… 🙂

  2. I like the second picture

  3. Dan Antion says:

    I like the close-up/macro 2nd from end. It looks like fabric. Great photo.

    • It’s fun to play with editing, although I still feel I should have an excellent photo at the beginning. Sometimes, though, editing can save the day and make something out of not much


  4. Norm 2.0 says:

    I’m kinda partial to the B & W version.

  5. Lena says:

    I think nr 2 the first one with the yellow frame is the best one.

  6. I vote for the second photo. 🙂

  7. The second one keeps the delicacy evoked in your original. Maybe just a bit less bright color. It’s a lovely composition.

  8. Allan G. Smorra says:

    The texture of #5 is wonderful, but my favorite is the second one. The subtle highlight where the stem meets the petal makes the whole image work. Good job and nice editing choices all around.

  9. I guess I’m still in the “more is less” camp… I think that the last is best. True to the original, but slightly more vibrant and painterly.

  10. Joyce says:

    I like the second one best with its vivid color, detail, and border. I’m always impressed with your photos. Some of them are so interesting, with ‘character,’ making them so unique. 🙂 What make and model of camera do you use, Janet?

    More than just a series of photographs. These deep yellow glories beckon you to crawl into them. Bask in their sunshine. Float on their lingering fragrance. Become one with them. A flower for every mood. Delightful!!!

  12. Lovely – my favourite has to be the monochrome – it feels so sad

  13. de Wets Wild says:

    It’s impossible to choose, Janet! Each version has its own allure!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
