      Nice comp. Just the flower on it's own would make a great pic.

      Maybe try and tone down the hot spots on the Strelitzia.

      Well done Johan.

      This is a superb shot! Well done. Johan, there is also the additional nit of a little too much sharpening. If you want to send me the original file as out of camera, I would be more than happy to fix these minor nits for you and send the file back, given that you do not have PS. No pressure, but if you want, my e-mail is rik@coetzee075.orangehome.co.uk. Well done on a splendid shot.

      Good shot. A bit of PS from Rik and it should become an excellent shot. Lovely clear sharp colours.

      Nits covered. This is calendar material when nits are removed in PS. Would love to see what Rik produces!
