Nice colourful shot Krystal.A little brighter and with some sky colour would have helped.

There was a lot of fog, and NO sky. I tested various enhancements, and didnt like it. saturation burns the colours. light changes wipe out the top left area. Thanks for looking and thanks for the votes. Krystal

You couldn't do any more with this, than you did, Krystal; when you have such a huge discrepancy in dynamic range, then you are going to be forced to sacrifice something; it was either a matter of preserving the color and "essential" mystery of the arrangement, or sacrifice that in an effort to "correct" the sky. It's likely that it would not have worked, in any case. You'd simply have succeeded in overloading yourself with unnecessary -- and unwarranted -- frustration.

Great shot, Krystal. You've captured this lovely pink flower in every stage of its flowering life. Bud through to its end. Well done. Looked it up but to no avail!!
Take care....Pauline
