I have worked on this so long that I can't find the center of focus in it. I don't know what to cut out of the picture since it was a photograph of mine taken last year and i have worked on it off and on for months.
If any one can help I would be greatful

Not much for helping find a focal point I know. But I liked this crop more than some of the others I played with. Does this help?

Thank you Janet - I just don't know it is hard for me to loose anything but I must.
Can anyone else come up with another idea the more the better -It helps an artist grow with the help from people who do such good work as the ones in this group.

the problem with the crabapple image is indeed one of focus. everything done to it seems to have the effect of reducing focus. the blur/smear, the ghosting and so on all lead to less focus. this has the overall effect of making the image too busy.

the solution is to cut back on the effect. i did a quick example here and it's by no means meant to represent the best possible rendition; it's just an example. and at the end i ran a light high pass sharpen just for good measure.

there's lots of potential there and i'd love to see the original photo.

I will try the highpass if I find a good one -which did you use? Your rendition was great, thank you. I came up with this crop because I worked so hard on the leaf I had to keep some of it in. Let me know what you all think. I always put about a 1-2 inch border around my work.

ydelle,

thank you

i dont use photoshop, so the high pass sharpen is from paint shop pro 10.

i see you chose the small block. there were two basic blocks in your image, the long, vertical, rectangular one on the left side and the square one in the upper right. it's still pretty busy, all those pinks running into each other, but certainly better. if you could isolate just one main flower where the petals on it didnt run into any of the others, i think this might help.

I came up with two paintings instead of one -thank you.
the rectangle on is my second I have to see what it looks like printed because it looks fuzzy but it could be my eyes at this point.
