After several attempts to try out different tools and change the way things look
I got so confused that in the end I just took this humble weed the Dandelion and took it on suppressed flash and Macro,cropped and lightly sharpened
It's the best I can do for now. but I like it!

Beautiful macro, Sally, you make this little weed flower look so good. The yellow is excellent, as is the background. Very nice.

Hi Sally, I just noticed that we finished so close to each other. But my son outscored us both :-)) I think I will monopolize my camera soon, otherwise he will put me out of business...

Greetings from the critique club
This is an outstanding macro.
Colours are rich and bold. The composition is pleasing.

A little more DOF would make it perfect. I'd clone out the blue in the left bottom corner.

The crop might be a little close on the bottom and left, even though, this is very nice.

Excellent effort.

An altogether lovely shot, with nice composition and beautiful lighting. I would love to be able to see just the hint of the stem to anchor the flower a little more. A good combination of shapes, forms and textures.

Shape is not the most important thing in the photo. Great flower shot. 5

Very nice flowe shot. I wish tho that you had taken advantage of spot editing and blackened out the bottom left hand corner. Not a big deal, but just keeps the shot from being perfect

Now this is a gorgeous shot, wonderful choice of colors, the black background really accents the yellow flower, the flower has magnificent detail and clarity, great lighting, 10
