Kathy,

I am no expert at photographing flowers, and I didn't see the suggestions made for the original image, so this is just for what it's worth. I prefer the original to the rework mostly because the rework seems a little soft, it has a good deal of negative space on the left side, and doesn't do as well as the original at depicting a flower among many. Impatiens occur in herds (or whatever the word is! ) and to me an image of them looks more natural if it shows a group in some way, which the first image does. As another suggestion, and again I didn't see the original discussion, I think I might try isolating the primary flower not by making it the only one in the image but by some slight blurring and desaturating of the secondary flowers, or perhaps a bit of vignette. The point would be to create emphasis on the primary flower without entirely removing the others.

You're lucky you have (had?) these flowers -- ours didn't do terribly well this year.

Just my two cents,
keith

I like the rework because of the cropping/cloning to isolate the main subject against a dark background.

I don't really have any issues with it but I am sure others will see how to improve contrast and sharpness.

Best version so far IMO! The flower itself looks a bit overexposed - also might want to balance the exposure in a S&P to taste situation.

In terms of the three versions presented I feel that this one takes the cake.
