I underexposed this shot initially because I was afraid of blowing out the white of the flower. So in the RAW processing software I increased exposure comp, applied a different tone comp, brought out the dark areas via Digital DEE, and changed the white balance to give it more of a blue cast and to counteract the red cast of the original shot. Then ran through Neat Image, cropped, resized and applied USM.

Beautiful shot. Think I would have cropped more off the right side though.

Oh wow, How elegant!
I could use just a little more light at the bottom part of the image, but other then that this is a beautiful image that smells so nicely.
I love the idea and the clean execution.
Well done! 8
