Gary, although the leaves are fine there's something about the processing of the petals that makes them look unnatural to me. Almost as if they were drawn not photographed.

Edit: Actually it's a nice effect, but I suspect it wasn't what you were intending.

Uuuummmm, yeah, I think Ted may be right, the petals look like an oil painting, especially the lower blossom. Even so, the photo itself is a pretty one, and it looks like a special effect done on purpose so the overall photo works well.

Thanks, guys. This was shot with the E620 & Sigma 18-50mm. I opened up the aperture a bit to see if I could get rid of the red noise that always appears on the black/dark portion and it did work... mostly. However, it softened the image somewhat.
