This is the same image as yesterday, but I reduced the intensity of the yellow in the manner suggested by Barbara.

@Dawn: Thank you, Dawn. I was purposefully working with complementary colors.
Good choice. The yellow now falls to a supporting role and it's really quite beautiful.

@Larry Lefever: Thanks, Larry--that is the role I wanted for the BG.
It seemed to have opened up the centers of the little blossoms too - whatever you did. Glad it worked. You have some lovely contrasts working here. Gorgeous!
@Barbara Kile: I did exactly what you suggested--lowered saturation and lightness, then used brush in mask to bring back the flower at 100%. I'm thrilled that you noticed a difference in the centers--I allowed the yellows to remain the brighter color. Thanks so much for your suggestion.
This is very nice, Anita. I have to agree with Barbara, but I still like the one from yesterday, too!

@Julie Brown: Thanks, Julie. They have a different feel.
Beautifully presented. Your flowers are so much like watercolor paintings.

@john4jack: Thank you for this comment!
PS - The combo of the D300 with the Sigma 105mm seems to be working very well for you.

@john4jack: Yes, they serve my needs very well! thanks for remembering.
This version is better.

Good choice of edit, the other one is pretty harsh to the eyes, and these blues needed to be balanced with a sympathetic although contrasting colour.

I like the color of yellow in the background in this version. Five exclamations!

I also like this version better Anita. It doesn't seem like the yellow is competing as much, and is much more complimentary instead.
