BIG BLOOMS

Some more pics that I had transferred from slides recently.  Probably from 1995 or so.

This is the original of the set.

And here it is brightened up a bit and cropped slightly. 

And finally cropped very close. 

My favourite is the second shot.
Keeping some of the darker colour around the edge provides contrast that is lost in the final, closely cropped shot.

What do you think?

  1. Hello - your photo is so bright and sunny I noticed it straight away in 'Flowers on Saturday'. The middle pic is the nicest - the contrast does give it a special touch - Sharon
