I am not sure all that work was neccessary, Rachel, I dont see anything wrong with the original. Both versions are fantastic.

I like both but I'm not sure which one more, let me think... I don't know, it's true that in the first version the background is a bit distracting but I like the colour effects on it. Good work in both cases. Ana

Lovely work Rachel, the detail is excellent! I think Butterflies are a very hard subject to get spot on, but you have done so here!

i am curious... how did u change the background?

Rachel Scott-Renouf
thanks everyone!
Samantha, i duplicated the image in PSE2. desatured it the gaussion blurred it - added more blue, then put it on top of the original photo, decressed the opacity to 50% so i could see the original underneath and erased where the butterfly and flowers were. the put the opacity back up to 100% and saved as a jpeg.
I'm not sure if you are familar with layers?
