I took a chance with this & desaturated everything but my favorite part--the petals. This was shot hand-held under the noonday sun in between gusts of wind. The BG is provided by an umbrella. Appologies in advance to everyone who is unimpressed by another flower shot.

I don't doubt that you did some desaturation, but I can't tell by looking. :-(

I can't really tell that anything has been desaturated here.

The desat doesn't highlight something in your image.

Could use alot more focus...maybe a better background would help also.
