Default Lily with forest background

Here is a lily that shot, cropped heavily... Somehow I feel that this photo is a tad dark... but giving it more light seems counter-productive. Also, someday, I will have to learn how to get rid of the flower below, which sort of makes the picture busy.

Thanks for any helpful CC in advance.

Ned

Sorry Ned, I find this picture to be outstanding, and I would not worry about the flower below. You have three choices:

1) Leave as is (recommended)

2) Clone out lower flower (difficult, but do-able)

3) Phically remove lower flower by destroying it (not recommended)

I like it as it is, beautifully done!

Ned,

Great picture. Pretty much agree with Robert here. That little "litter" in the bottom right perhaps doesn't add to the overall impression. On the other hand - perfection - is it really desireable?
