[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this picture of a Clematis flower in our garden last week.

PP Work - Added frame with separate frame layer overlay, cut out rectangle added white pinstripe to the edge while that portion of frame was selected, turned the frame to a 40% opaque to identify which area to erase. Once I had erased the frame portion to give the illusion of the petal coming out of the frame I went over the sharp edge with a blur tool to give a soft look. Increases the opaqueness of the frame layer to 100% then resized for TL.

Hope you like it

Hi Brian,
A splendid POV to this pink flower with lovely PP work. I like the petals off-frame!
Good use of shallow focusing on the heart of the flower. Nice contrast with the dark BG and a superb golden heart!
Good macro work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

A wonderful PP work coupled with a nice closeup shot from a lovely flower made this picture an exceptional one, Brian!
Great sharpness and perfect management of exposure.
The colors are natural and a black frame suits very well to the work.
Well done!

Thanks and regards,
