Kinda in a quandary, as both of my monitors are not in sync in terms of calibration (something I need to do ASAP).

So I'm not exactly sure which is the "true" image unfortunately. Looks properly exposed on one, underexposed on another.

With that being said, would love feedback!

Thanks,

Jeff

Seems reasonable, if perhaps rather busy.

I actually rather like how there is no main focal point.

Reminds me of fireworks.

The overall exposure looks decent on my monitor; however, it would still need to be lighter for a good print. In terms of the image itself, I would agree with the previous comments. It is too busy and needs to be simpler with some areas of interest. I would try some heavy burning on the background. Leave the 8 or 10 central flowers light and darken everything else. There would still be a lot of clutter but maybe enough simplification to make it work.

You have a nice round, globe-like formation of the purple flowers. I would think about burning down some of the background vegetation in the center, or selectively reducing the luminosity of the yellow and green tones there. Maybe a bit more vignette.

Hope you don't mind me playing. Sometimes less is more, especially with flowers. Added contrast to blacken background.

Thanks for the replies, everyone! I've yet to get a chance to play around with the shot, but I fully intend to put some of the ideas here to use.

And I'll never have an issue with anyone playing with the pic.
