Many thanks to Neil for showing me a great crop and processing ideas on this. This may not do well, but I got a great lesson about what a little editing and cropping can do for a pretty ho-hum photo. Don't be afraid to get in close and crop away!

Here was my attempt to "polish the turd" before Neil got a hold of it.

Too much editing for my tastes. But beautiful colors.

I wish you didn't cut off the edge of that flower and the border just highlights that, besides being really annoying. Other than that i love yur photo down to the fluffy colorful blurred background

A bit over-saturated. Crop problem at bottom.

Perhaps a little much on some of the blues but I like this shot. It's pretty and I like the artistic painting sort of feel. Back to bump you up to 8.

Too much contrast add to this photo. It kinda washes the flower out.
