Those who know me, know that I love to edit photos, to see how much I can get out of an image, what details I can find, how I can make it even prettier than reality. It’s an art, and a science, and it’s also a source of relaxation for me.

Here are some edits – these are all different shots, but similar, and edited differently.
The first one is from my last RegularRandom post.

Which one is you favourite, and why?

  1. Like picking your favorite child! 😀 I think I like the second one best…. The darker color makes this one look like it’s floating. The little lines in the petals make it look like an old painting. I just really like it!

      1. yes – and I did look closely a few times and think I NOW know why i like that one best 🙂
        it is the value (light to dark) with color (as opposed to the mono third – which is nice) and the second is a lot of rich color and not as clear (to me that is…) and so the first has that gradation of light to dark.
        also – just FYI – from the reader – i thought that was a line of water and maybe wind was captured – but on closer look we see different – hmmm

        1. I like your thinking. I agree with your choice. Although I do like the second one as well. I think the mono needs a little more clarity and contrast. I LOVE that you saw wind and water 😊

          1. actually I like all three so much – and together they make a wonderful trio – especially with the interest – so to pick a fav was not to find flaws in the others (if that makes sense) and glad we did not have to pick a fav – it really was fun to look at all three
