I took Tomas' advice on prior post--centered, cropped, cloned green. I also took it into Elements and used shadow/highlights.

@Christine: Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving comments!
Well, this change makes two entirely different shots with different points of view. Yesterday's image was about the life and energy of the whole flower (the green edges helped give boundary and definition.)
This one is about the center of the flower. Lovely with the petals closed inward waiting to unfurl.
They are each of a different nature. And wonderful.

@DULCIE: Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I find it fascinating that a small change makes such a difference.
Agree with Dulcie that we need not choose between these two fine images - they each have more than enough merits to stand alone. Yesterday's was full of life and vigor and today's forms a wonderful abstract.

@Ronnie 2¢: Ronnie: I always appreciate your thoughtful comments. I find it fascinating that a small change in the image created such different results.
I agree with Dulcie that this is a different photo than what you posted yesterday. I also agree that this one is about the centre of the blossom while the prior photo was about the whole blossom. Each of the photos has its own feel. This one has stronger impact in my opinion. Imagine it printed on a big format, perhaps with side of length about 1 meter, hanging in some hall. It would surely have strong impact and maybe even WOW effect. I think that previous photo wouldn't have so strong impact on viewer. Just my opinion ;)

@Tomas Turecek: Tomas: I have you to thank for the creation of the second image, and the interesting result--two significantly different images!
I'm in full agreement with all above, but especially Tomas..........this definitely has the WOW thing going !!!

@Susan: Thank you so much for your comments and support. I'm surprised at the impact resulting from the small change.
This is stunning! 5*****!

@Wild Mustang Photography: Thanks so much!!
I love the tighter crop, and it does have more impact, IMO. Very nice!

@Julie Brown: Well, who would have guessed cropping a bit more would produce such a result. Thanks for commenting.
Yes! Very WOW!

I loved them both! I think I prefer yesterday's, although I agree with Dulcie - it's like two entirely different shots. Either way, they're beautiful!
