I took this today and looking to see what you think. Though not much editing.

I concur with Cory, any chance you could clone it out?

I am trying to clone not sure if I would be able to as I am not very good with PS :)

How about this one? I am still trying to clone out some portion but I took another one with all black background.

That's fun. I'd try to get some more light on the leaves underneath to give it a little more life.

In the first one you posted if you portrait crop out everything except the bubble and the first flower and a half you will have something quite interesting. Everything else is just photographic "noise" that doesn't fit the bubble and flower (i.e. chair). Plus, there is symmetry in the bubble that through some simple processing can really make it pop.

I'm cropping it simply with my hands and I can certainly say its a really cool photo you got there.

Thanks guys!

Did some cloning and cropping as suggested and this is my final image!

What do you think?

Personally, I like it. Simple, nice color, good bokeh. If you can make the white in the upper left green (perhaps by cloning) that would be good.

Do you have Topaz or Nik Effects at all? It would do wonders on the bubble itself.

Now I think I covered all suggestions!

I like it but think it still needs a bit of a poke to liven it up,a little Nik as suggested maybe.

when you clone, select the area you want to keep, invert and then clone. the clone wont go in to the selection and you will be able to keep that bottom flower which IMO is vital to the composition.

this is a very fast job to see what i mean.

edit for clarity

Agree with Mike, keep the full composition. Agree also that a little Nik Viveza structure on the bubble and flower would give it a tiny bit of extra pop.
