HI Valerio....The color wash is real nice but I do wish the center was a bit sharper. Also, the colorwashed bg is beautiful but has a few spots to clean up.

Hi Valerio,
Very good advice given by Bob above. As the corners get darker....in this case eliminating them with a crop will help strengthen the image. You may also try and lighten the yellow center....just a touch and sharpen only it.....seee if that works better for you.

Hey Valerio, focus on the flower center and offsetting it a little would have made this image much stronger.

Agree with the others. By the way - what camera did you use? That would be most helpful to know!

Hi Valerio, The colors are really pretty and would like to see the center a bit sharper. I would also get rid of the dust spots around the image.

Thank you all. You'll see in the next days others with more DoF , less close.
