It's interesting to see how others process their images. This is far more brutal than I would do, but then this does define a style of yours, and that's what it should do. I never thought of actually retouching flowers, but you did this as well. Why didn't I think of that?

I spent some time going through your links. I wonder why the original was illuminated the way it was with a shadow over the neck.

Thanks for sharing. I'll be spending more time on the slower version of the video.
