Sanvitalia procumbens: Simulated bee vison filter - improved version 3

So this is about tuning my proprietary Bee Vision Filter (that simulates the UV-Blue-Green vision of a bee in just one shot). Here again it is used on a Sanvitalia procumbens flower. As the greens were a bit underrepresented (take the green bud left for example) in my current XBV2 filter, I optimize my filter stack to get "better" greens in my new XBV3 filter.

So in my opinion, the new version XBV3 represents the leaf color better, yet still brings out the UV marks as white petal tips nicely.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
