Trying transparency of petals with Gimp_2.8.10 from a picture in my garden last summer.

Love your use of color. The cool blue-green of the background gives a nice sence of depth. I like this very much!

You didn't ask for critiques but I'll take a chance and make a suggestion. The whiteness of the middle flower kind of stood out to me but I thought that maybe that's way the flower was. But more likely it is overexposed in the photo, cameras do that a lot. You might consider painting those petals to be closer in colour to the other ones, just with more highlight.

Thanks LavenderFrost and zebby. Any critiques or suggestions are very welcome. Feedback about how a work is perceived is always interesting and helpful. Thanks for taking the time to reply. The light was reflecting more on the older faded petals and I felt that there might have been a bit too much dark tone. I'll go back and look at the original layer and see if it is better darker or with more colour.
