this turned out so nice! I love trillium and you gave them a compeltely different look here, yet still their fragility and beauty show.

Quite wonderful use of the colours and light reversal in a negative image; the effect is lyrical, as if we can see the spirits of the leaves. Edit to add thanks for the original and all your steps.

The more I look at this, the more beautiful it seems. Back to boost up the vote to a 10.

Wow, this is lovely. Great tones and nice color in the flower in the right. Like how the delicate "veins" look.
