Greater Stitchwort Stellaria holostea grows in woods, roadside verges, hedgerows and grassy banks. Other common names include Wedding Cakes, Star-of-Bethlehem, Daddy's-shirt-buttons and Snapdragon. The name Stitchwort comes from using an infusion of the plant's leaves to treat stitch in the side.
This one grows in my garden.
I wanted the petals to almost fade into the bg,to put the emphasis on those gorgeous golden stamens.
Photographed in daylight ( in situ) faffed with in Photoshop.
Thank you for taking the time to look/comment.

The stamen are wonderful as is the stem. I think you've achieved your aim beautifully.
