    is this too dark? or just right? the thing that also concerns me is the highlight in the middle of the flower seems a bit blown out. what do you think?

    this challenges me. i had to like it, love it, then hate it. i love it.

    i'd be sooooo much less concerned about the center of the flower than i would be about the hotspot to the right of the flower. if i were you, i'd post this in the 'critique' gallery if you want additional comments. since you posted it here, i respect that you want only your question(s) answered.

    - no, not too dark.
    - hot spot - see above.

    Well done!!! Very beautiful and surreal. Judging contrast and detail is a gyp over the internet . Everyone's monitor is different. The true test is the print or try using photoshop's info palette.

    Yeah, the center of it is a concern for me too. I'm gonna go back and rework the crop i made a bit. I just got tied up with homework and left it as is for now.

    Edit: Er...nevermind. I read what you said wrong. Either way, yeah, I'm going to try to center the flower a little more.

    perhaps you misread my comment? don't be concerned with the center; it works.

    Great link. Hopefully everyone has passed the monitor test. I am still a firm believer in toning in the print not the monitor. I must say that it took days for me to get WYSIWYG off the Epson printer.
