    I could be wrong suggesting more saturation, I just love those colours you've got in there and wonder if stronger would work.
    Thanks. More saturation? I think I moved the slider in elements to something like 40 already, but I will open the saturation throttle, so to speak, and see if it takes. And I hear you about the ROT, it could be tweaked here, which isn't a problem since this shot is about a 50% crop so there's some wiggle room.

    I was thinking of cloning rather than cropping btw.

    You think that by just cloning out the lower left flower it will adhere more to ROT? I see. I will take a shot at it, but I may have some difficulties getting the clone to look smooth enough, as the detail isn't entirely featureless around it.

    I could be out of my mind I just mention what went through my head whilst looking at your shot. The reason I think just cloning would make it more ROT is that you'd be removing superflous detail that contradicts the ROT of your shot.

    To clone out when you've got detail around it I use a big radius like 150-300 pixels and around 50-70% hardness. I usually succeed cloning textured areas that way. Worth a try but it may not work.

    Here is what I had in mind, I'll remove it if you don't like it as it's probably bad form to edit someone elses' artwork. Now that I've seen this I think your version was nicer.
    I masked the red/pink as increasing the sat of that turned it into nuclear red, but I increased it on the green yellow.

    Nice clone work, I'm pretty bad at it unless it's something very easy against a solid background. And I don't mind the edit, we ought to have a permissions feature like POTN does so no one steps on someone else's toes.

    I was able to shoot in the garden last weekend (not only flowers but at least plants):

    I really like this one. Did not expect it to look this awesome.



    This one too. Looks like some alien ship. :O
