Looking at both again, the first yellow border did make the yellow in the flower stand out more, and the last version seems to make it more muted. I still think the yellow border was just a bit too much though.

Nobody else has commented on it, so I may be alone on this one (it's not uncommon for my tastes to be different).
Hello Jim,

The tonal values are much brighter in the image with the brighter border. Anything darker would have been a visual distraction.

For the second presentation, I darkened the tones so the brighter border would have been a distraction.

LOL -- I was typing at the same time you posted (editing my first post in this thread)...

I prefer the settings in the first image.

I removed the borders (so that they would not influence my judgement), viewed the images side by side, and I think the way you had the image to begin with is better (except the yellow border was a bit too much for me).
