    This is a random shot of a flower I took in Italy, after being cropped and edited. I'm not sure which version I like better, or if either of them are any good, so please let me know what you think. Anyway, here they are.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    You made the first, the colour version, quite soft, which I like, and the colours are very pleasing. With the (added?) softness, very much detail gets lost in the black and white conversion, which is why I say I clearly prefer the colour version to the black and white one.

    In addition to that I've had grey up to here *puts flat hand under nose* ... our days are so awfully grey right now ... I so want the colours in nature back at last :D.

    i agree.

    forgive my crude PS masking :) i believe it's important to show as much detail in your subject as possible, unless you're going for something completely different. PS is a great tool for restoring some lost definition. this is a quick edit and it's a little dark...but i think you get the jest of what im saying.
