I'm fond of the 2nd with the bug on it
The first one seems underexposed, needs to be brighten up. Icant see a bug on 2. Both seem oof abit. Could be my glasses.
I hope you dont mind but I thought I'd brighten them up, alittle tweak here and there.
Ah I def liked them a little darker, I thought it made the yellow pop out. To each his own I guess
Flowers are some of the only good clichés...and these turned out nice...good job...here's a version of "High Fashion" I did for you considering you mention it is alright to edit your photos:
Nice, I kind of like that actually haha. I like the softened focus a lot.
Its the blur effect I've been using on my flower shots lately...
Take a photo into a photo editor (ie Photoshop) make a copy of the original layer...hide the original layer...make another copy of the copied layer...add a gaussian blur to suit taste...use overlay as the blending mode...
It'll turn a photo like this:
The only problem will be the darkening...which will take a little tinkering with to correct...
I'm a noob and even with your explanation I still don't understand how you did this, but it's a very nice edit. I love the softness and the glow to it. You took an ordinary photo, and made it beautiful. Maybe one day I'll catch on and be able to do it myself. Could I pull this off in gimp?
I think #1 would be very nice if the forward flower was sharp focus & the other very soft.
If the GNU Image Manipulation Program works with layer (which it does), then yeah...I should get the new version of GiMP and check it out...I'm a big fan of sourceforge.net, freshmeat.net and the whole copyleft movement...
