    Three very nice images, Dave. I also would like to see the first image in color but I do like the textures in the image as is. The second image is nice, the strand of spider web (?) is a bit distracting and can be cloned out easily enough, but the flower with it's detail is quite nice. The third image is also quite nice and is another that I would like to see in color. I especially like how it orients through the frame on an angle. Looks as though you had a great day at the gardens. Thanks for sharing.
     
  4. as requested...

    Here's the first shot in color:

    original.

    Whenever I post shots of that particular cactus, people always request a color version so I made sure to process it both ways. The ocotillo shot however, I don't have in color. I'll process some more shots today and maybe I'll include it in color, but really, there's not much color there to start with. It's fall/winter here (so it's only in the 70's and 80's) and all of the ocotillo look dead right now.
