"Orange You Lovely" (10-24-15 019v2) is an earlier version of the pic I posted yesterday. Although closer to the original pic, I still did quite a bit of fussing with it. It's been heavily cropped (as I can't clamber over rough ground to get in close, I often take shots from a distance and hope I can get good results with cropping). It also needed some cleaning up (background and petal "schmutz"). And I used a couple filters on it to fudge with the texture, as I wanted to soften and bring out those lovely curved edges. When I do that I almost always then have to sharpen a pic a little, as I did here. I also did a wee bit of color saturation. (BTW, did I mention that my new camera had gone into a coma? I was taking pix of our Halloween costume party revelers and it just wouldn't turn on again. And the lens froze in open position, though it was retracted. I've been doing some googling and trying to get advice on what I might try, that I haven't already. I'm afraid the coma is terminal. But there are a couple other long shots I can try when I'm up to it. In the meantime, I'm back to my old Samsung. Today's pic was taken with the now comatose Nikkon.)
