I came across this floral grouping on the Photo Walk. OK, so the original was pretty … but it needed some umph. The photo was taken at 50mm to emphasize the foreground.
To give the image a bit of a lift, I edited in Topaz Adjust. This filter takes the original in Lightroom 3 and converts to a .tif as a copy.
I used the “mild details” filter to increase contrast and definition. The final version was cropped 1:1. (square). A strong vignette put the focus on the flowers.
