Really had a lot of fun with this image. I found myself second guessing the tweaking in Photoshop and worked on it several times. This was the one I liked best.

Raw image: exposure adj; contrast adj; save as jpeg
Open in Photoshop: crop; brightness/contrast adj.; selective color adjs several times (neutral, blacks, whites, yellow, green),curves adj; clone tool for some petal imperfections; dodge & burn a few petals; spot heal blemishes on petals; noise reduction; USM; add border; resize; smart sharpen; save for web


Thanks for the great comments; it has been a nail biter for me with the ups and downs of voting. I had fun.

Very white. I like how the petal details are still quite clear. Very nice to just enjoy for a while.

The symmetry, splash of colour and ethereal quality make this a superlative image.

Very well done - I hope this ribbons.
Good (not usual) composition of the flower, nice detail in the petals, and good contrast as well!
