This photo came straight out of the camera. I did use a plamp and reflector, along with good lighting to bring out the facets in the amethyst stone. Cropped the image in Photoshop Elements 2.0. No other processing was used. The flower was plucked from my yard, along the Lake Ontario shoreline.

seems a little blurry or out of focus IMO

Good idea, but it's coming across as reddish pink, not purple. Rubelite maybe?

i like how the black bg streaks compliment the foregroud. the placement of the flower at the top center feels odd. your focus is a bit soft and i don't feel it enhances the image with it's current composition

Its not bad at all...I like that background with curves. Oh just noticed that stone there! Ups. Well that means you really tried to be creative. One thing that defenetly will take you down is focus. Maybe its there but maybe not enough. Keep shoting!

I like the composition of your photograph. However, the colors more likely resemble pink tones. I do not see purple in the subject or background.

Sorry, this is not purple for me. Both the flower and the background are shades of pink.
