    The first one seems underexposed, needs to be brighten up. Icant see a bug on 2. Both seem oof abit. Could be my glasses.

    Ah I def liked them a little darker, I thought it made the yellow pop out. To each his own I guess :)

    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:

    Into 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...
