It's a beautiful image!! No question!


I know some of you are going to want to sacrifice me like a "Spring Chicken
for what comes next.":-) Forget it! As it's just an opinion as I look at
this with my one good eye? :-)

It's one leaf and absolutely so simple easy to fix as it turns this into,
"not a bad photo!"

There is one leaf almost dead center, if the photographer had of gently used
a small pair of scissors or snipers and nicked it off leaving the overall
image clean and unobstructed?

And if you are a flower photog and haven't quietly and quickly leaned over
and nipped a leaf or sometimes a flower out of the way to help create a
"smashing great image???" Then you haven't lived!

The pro flower guys do this all the time. Nip a leaf or flower here and
there in a manner you don't even see where they did their nip off.

It's that one semi-out of focus leaf dead centre! Nick it off right down
bottom of stem and this becomes a smashing great B&W flower image.

As it is?????????? Well look at it as I have and then make your assessment.
