    Found this little beauty growing in our backyard. I found it to be really attaractive. Flower colors are all orignal, no editing, just the background was desturated to make the flower stand out.

    Hope to get all your feedback.

    Welcome to the forum

    That is definitely a nice flower, I like the symmetry.

    I'd like to see the ends of the petals a bit sharper, it looks like they a little soft due to the shallow depth of field. Was the background green before you desaturated it? I was just thinking that the flower would stand out well on it's own...without the desaturation. A green background may even set it off nicely. You could try to blur the background to emphasize the flower, just an idea anyway.

    First, Welcome to TPF.

    I love the photo - nice color in the flower and your desaturation really makes it pop out. Very nice!
