Thanks for all the the contributions so far. I didn't think it would be such a difficult subject for experimentation and that we would have had a few more posts before now.

Palms, I thought the name was especially appropriate considering that I took the picture in Jerusalem, Israel.

Happy, healthy, safe New Year to everyone.

Janet

Re: Peace...

I have been enjoying this thread. Question, why the dark black background?

Why not something greenish?

The original background had very little green in it. After the curves adjustment, there was more dark than light. I just got rid of what little light there was left because it was a distraction. As to the black...I was taught early on by instructors that the black background made the flowers and colors pop. In this case, I agreed. If I knew where the original was (does that say something about my filing system?), I'd post it for comparison.

Oh, and P.S. With the background the way it is, I expected to have some intrepid souls extract the flower and do funky things with it.

Well you wanted something done with the background!!!!!!

I went a little wacky with the rest - I got a new toy to play with.
