Here is a typical goats beard ... this is regular processing

the next two are the same image, just different processing .. can't decide

a harsh one?

# 3 for me
then #1 and #2 in that order

Nice shot BTW

Hmmm - I agree - nice shot!
For me, I like the delicate white in the flower - and that shows up best in the unprocessed image.
shot 2 draws my eye into the stems towrd the center of the image and the selective/desaturated colour in shot 3 also drives my eye away from the flower's outer perimeter into the stems.

Hope that may help

The softness of shot 3 seems to suite the subject better, in my eye.

Hmm, tough choice for me between 1 and 3. Shot 1 better depicts the sunlight and daytime warmth, and 3 has a dream-like feel to it. Both are very nice.

Exactly. Very hard toss-up between these two. Both are very pleasing for different reasons.

Had to look at these for a while to decide. I like the detail I can see in the 2nd shot but it's just too harsh for me personally. I'm going with the 1st shot.

Thanks all for the comments. Much appreciated. Personally I am liking the soft one as well .. does something to the soul ....
