"At the End of the Rainbow" (8-2-10 10004v2) has been hanging around for about six years. I finally fixed it up to my satisfaction this morning. Really didn't have to do a lot to it once I had a crop and rotation I could live with. (Those center cup-like petals add a different visual heft to whichever way the picture is rotated. It was a challenge to find a comfortable rotation.) I then just did some color adjustment to move it more toward a goldish yellow, sharpened it a little bit, and then cleaned out some tiny distracting spots. Though I have to admit I'm still not fully happy with the crop. I've tried many different crops, even a vertical rectangle. But that lightened the visual weight of this pot of gold, which I don't want. So I'm relatively content with it as is.
