A potentially appealing photo but which suffers from a couple of issues. Firstly it is overexposed - this has been caused by the dark background. Secondly the bright vegetation in the top right of the photo draws the eye away from the lily.

In the mod I've uploaded for you I have cropped from the top and removed the remainder of the distracting vegetation by cloning. I then used the shadows/highlights tool in PS to try and pull back the overexposed areas of the flower - but this has had only limited success. If something is completely overexposed there is really nothing you can do to reverse that.
