daffodil bud, 2 edits for cc

I was tweaking this one in my usual fashion, but it kept seeming still a little too dull to me. I have been staring at it too long I think lol. Then I tried out a vintage type edit, which is shown in #2.

Do these work, what do you think of them? are they too dull?

Definitely not too dull Amy! These are gorgeous! I love how you can take something usually overlooked, and make it beautiful! I love #1!

Thank you all! I am so glad you like it. I did love the composition and DOF. Just felt the contrast was off or something. Glad to know they "work"! Smile I also did quite a significant clone-out removal of another bud that was in the foreground but was chopped off and it distracted from the main bud....:D

These are AWESOME, Amy! In fact, I can't pick a favorite. I'm leaning ever so slightly to #2, but it's a hard choice!

The soft nature of the processing is just PERFECT (imho)!

I love that vintage edit!!!!

I think that the first edit looks a bit too green.
