Thanks for all the comments and suggestions, to say nothing of all the work in messing with my photo, Socrate. I appreciate your very kind investment of time and effort. Maybe I'm just used to it, but I don't find the colors to be distracting at all. As I said earlier, I tried changing the color of the table with a Hue/Saturation layer but couldn't find a color that looked in any way natural. If you have another way of changing the color of the table, I'd be most interested. Maybe I could find some other color that doesn't look quite so unreal to me. Sadly, to my eyes, at least, the color change of the flower is particularly unsuccessful - again, maybe because I know the original flower so well. For the time being, I think I will leave it alone and maybe I'll mess with it again later, with fresh perspective.
Again, I appreciate you taking so much interest in helping to make the photo better.
All best wishes,
I like this image, Endre and I think Birdie's suggestion makes a lot of sense. So I tried to realize her vision (and mine with the flower) to see how it looks. I believe the bg is very nice so i wouldn't touch it, so I just worked on the table and the flower, that, to my eyes looked a bit too powerful and a bit distracting.
The image is more pleasing to my eyes, even tough i'm not completely happy with the color of the flower. However this is just to give you an idea to work your own colors...Show more →
