The title Wendi's FLowers is based on ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' JeffDay's wife bringing a basket of flowers over to my house. Here is a picture of her:

Took some nice shots of the flowers and when I was scamming through some, I found this image. Here are the editing steps:

1) Levels (NOT AUTO)
2) Curves
3) Brightness contrast (+14% each)
4) Hue/Saturation (Yellows and Reds)
5) Unsharp mask (250%)
6) Resize and submit!

8 - Nice selection, composition and colors. Difficult, but even more of the excellent textures (including the leaf) discernible, be even better.

More of a focus on the spiky things would be to my preference - the orange flower is just getting in the way
