    I was clearing out my memory cards and found this photo that I never did anything with, so I spent a little time with it and this is the end result. What do you think?

    The first one is the edited one, all I did is make the background black and crop it a little.
    The second one is completely un-edited.

    1/200
    f/5.6
    ISO 100

    It’s good to go through old photos and find ones to salvage!

    Depends on what you’d like to use the photo for, but I think I might try to crop it more on a third. Currently with the way it’s edited, it looks like a yellow flower that just got plopped onto blackness. 🙂 It doesn’t particularly make me want to admire the beauty of the flower.

    I also almost think it might look better if you leave a bit of the background texture rather than going completely black.

    So colorful! Great job editing out that background. Solid black looks great.

    Feel free to jump in on the webinar on the 12th, let me know you’re on, and I’ll critique your photo in detail! https://www.lenspiration.com/photo-critique-with-lenspiration-feb-12/
