    I have been setting up flowers to photograph while in lockdown and these are the ones I took today

    The bottom one is a bit turned away to be a "classic" flower shot. The top flower is nice but what did you do with the background? It looks most odd. Have you been inverting colour channels or something in the tone curve?

    Agree the flowers are lovely, but something going on with that background. Blue where you'd expect to see a lighter strip.

    Good point, I don't know what happened there. I'll go back to them later and see what's going on.

    I'd like to see them, put them in the Quarantine thread in exhibitions section for non appraisal :)

    I did brush the backgound and warmed it up, but the brush missed the lighter areas. So I re-did it and then changed the hue of the blues to get rid of what was left of the blue.

    If you did that in raw then you must have pushed it out of gamut when converted to jpg. If messing with hue adjustments it is worth softproofing, it is too easy to create something horrible. Background looks much better now.

    OK, I didn't know that, thank you :)

    Especially if you use a wide gamut monitor!
