Trying Waterlogue Styles on Red Bottlebrush Flowers

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge I thought I’d put Waterlogue through its paces with some red bottlebrush flowers on the west coast of Spain.

The original photo has just the right amount of detail to work with Waterlogue.
The Original Photo of the Spanish Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo AppVibrant: Definitely bright! (This ‘look’ toggles with Natural that reproduces the colours more or less as in the photo.)
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'Natural' Style Bold: Adds more colours into the image – I personally find it adds punch to images that are mostly one colour such as all green or all grey. It does add a white outline to silhouettes that I’m not crazy about, but is fine in this example.
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'Bold' Style ‘It’s Technical’: Lots of detail with a faint blue grid in the background. (This ‘look’ toggles with Streamlined.)
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'It's Technical' Style Travelogue: I find this ‘look’ the best for detail but it does add a yellow tinge. If I don’t like the yellow I just click Auto Color in Photoshop and that gets rid of it.
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the Travelogue Style Rain: A wet-on-wet style with thin ink strokes. It also darkens and greys the colours to the way they might appear on a rainy day.
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'Rainy' Style Color Bloom: My second choice if ‘Bold’ adds too much colour and ‘Natural’ not enough.
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'Colour Bloom' Style Fashionable: This is good for illustrations but has a tendency to leave an uncomfortable blank portion such as in the lower right hand side.
Bottle Brush Plant Edited in Waterlogue Photo App Using the 'Fashionable' Style Blotted: Another illustrative style which has turned this image into a design suitable for fabric or wallpaper.
