Walked out this morning, These were a couple of first things I saw. Taken handheld, in MF mode. No PP, just resized.

Thanks Bootneck. I thought maybe there was just a bit too much light. It was very bright and dry today. I don't like to overdo the PP, becauseI like to keep things much like I saw it in its natural state. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks again and also for your support.

It is generally worth doing some levels adjustment on shots like these to bring out the full range. It is a nice shot - but the processed version has had a bit too much (ie added contrast) = you have lost highlight detail. Try only bringing in the right hand Levels slider enough to brighten the whites without loosing detail in them. Then finish off with a subtle sharpen ('unsharp mask' or 'high pass' overlay are best, if you have them), to bring up edge detail...

I like #1 & #2. Perhaps a slight saturation boost is all they need to bring out the colors a bit. This is a lovely flower.
