The wife wants to make a print of this image for the bathroom. This is about 25% crop of the original.

Anything that could be improved before transferring to a 16x24" print?

Selective sharpening on the caterpillar and the flowers at the end?

I wouldn't want to see this in my bathroom every day, it's freaky...

Hey, it's in focus! [read on to understand]

My parents took one of my pictures from when I was a teenager and framed it and put it in their bathroom. It was (is) a couple of loons in the lake near their cabin. I had set the focus at infinity and clicked off the shots...all back focused by 15-20 yards. Now, 30 years later, I still have to see that OOF print in their bathroom.

That print has single-handedly caused me to buy several different digital cameras, 2 DSLRs, and an arsenal of glass (Nikon and Canon). Unfortunately, those loons have successfully evaded my camera in the 7-10 days a year I can spend chasing them around the lake.

I'd be delighted if my parents would frame your caterpillar and take down my fuzzy loons.

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

If I were going to put this on the wall I'd saturate the colors and as suggested darken the bg.

For a bathroom wall, I think it looks fine. It's bright and clean, and green envokes nature.

I like it. Don't know as I'd want a print that big in my bathroom, but it's nice they like it and want a copy.

I would try knocking the brightness down a bit and boosting the contrast.

I think Qbx's edit is getting a bit lime jello for my tastes.
