    Nice, interesting color tone.  I hope you aren’t breaking social distancing.  Stay healthy. (Typo earlier)

    I would like to see more saturation in the green leaves and a little more

    luminance in the yellow petals of the standing flower just to brighten the last survivor, but it’s just a

    matter of taste. It might also add distance between the yellow and green tones.

    I’m sure Mr. Raber intended the opposite of what he wrote in

    the second sentence. I have never made that kind of mistake

    (a heavy dose of irony with that last; actually it’s a flat-out lie).

     

    Be Well

    Kevin, no, I am being a Very Good Boy and barely going out at all. I get my morning paper and some snacks from a local deli, but that’s about it. Fortunately, I can work from home with only fairly minor adjustments. I took this one in France a couple of years ago. Browsing through old shots (like, I suspect, many of us, I take far more than I get round to processing) has been a fascinating exercise, which has turned up the odd gem.

    Dale, that’s an interesting comment. I’ve actually reduced the green saturation, to emphasise the contrast between the standing flower and the drab rest. I wouldn’t be averse to brightening the main one, though. I’ll have a play.

    I’ve played a little more with it. Thoughts?

    I think it works. The upright flower also seems stronger and healthier.

    Regards,
