very rushed editing, way too much of it - hopefully no-one notices all the flaws (and there are many) - was going to selectively soften, especially the grain - but just no time (last minute scurry, as always)

Good composition (even an unusual and original crop for this subject), but seems terribly "over-denoised" with neat image or some software like that, it provides and unnatural plastic appearance.

A bird of paradise! Clever title and lovely abstract...bursting with vibrant color.

The pixels are evident, and the shot is a bit soft perhaps bc it was shot a bit too fast. to keep sharp always crank up 2-3 stops. 7

Nice shot, only the sharpening is much too visible (almost b/w outlines along some of the leaves).

One of my favourite flowers. I am a little uncomfortable with the crop. And not sure whether closer or the full flower would work.
