I like the first idea (I like creative ideas), although the thing that really bothered me was the "bad shot" description. I won't say this is a bad shot, as there is a very fine and accentuated structure/color in the flower. You just can't get everything with the limited dynamic range of a dSLR or digicam.

I tried a "conventional" approach on the image to see what's really in there, and came up with this one (before/after comparison). With the original RAW imageeven more will be possible, but you already know this

Very good tnkn777. You have pulled up the colors nicely and given it a good sharp look. There was that purple fringe on the original running all around the flower. I just wasnt satisfied with the whole picture so thats why I tried a new plug in I have. I was glad for the opportunity to try to do something with an otherwise plain old shot of a flower. I rather liked the moodiness of the first and the eroticism of second. Thanks for taking the time.

Id appreciate any criticism on this experiment in trying to fix a bad shot. Did it work for you or not?
Hey Bynx,
I don't have any criticism but, I believe your flower is a Petunia.
and a very pretty one too.
