    I shot this with my E-PL2 and 40-150mm f/4-5.6 at a small, rural, mom-and-pop nursery. I've tried several times to turn it into a compelling image, but I've never been satisfied. I just can't seem to convey the feeling of spring that I think is within this image. Maybe you can do it.

    I have simplified the rules for this challenge to eliminate unnecessary boilerplate text.

    Simplified Rules for Post-Processing Challenge #178

    Entrants may submit one or two images. I will name a winner, first runner-up, and second runner-up after the Challenge ends on Thursday, June 11, at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. ET). The winner will provide the image for the next challenge within five days. Otherwise, the runner-up takes over.

    First place: EdH
    Second place: rloewy
    Third place: tyrphoto, color image

    EdH: I liked the crop, the colors, and the clarity. rloewy: THAT'S NOT PHOTOGRAPHY my inner photojournalist insisted. But I thought the painterly effect was beautiful so I ignored him. tyrphoto: I liked the muted contrast.

    Thanks to everyone who posted an entry. Over to EdH for the next Challenge.

    Thanks Brian.
    I'll try to pick something out tomorrow. I've got loads of shots in need of improvement!
