I typically find flowers boring (perhaps because I don’t know how to shoot them). But this time around, I went for a walk and couldn’t stop capturing shots that had lots of potential. All of these are post-processed, mainly to enhance colors and burn in the shadows. The result should be a subject that “pops”. Do they? C&C welcome.

I think you know how to shoot flowers just fine Melvin.
These are beautiful, but your PP work brings out so much more in them.
Well done.

Bright overcast light is best for flower and plant photography, it softens the shadows while maintaining the light. These are not bad; 5 and 6 stand out for me.
