Capturing the Glory

I love coneflowers and have some in my garden. It is
difficult to get just the right lighting because they
are on the south side of my house and that translates
into full sun most of the day. This first photo is the
actual picture I took.

After running it through Photoshop and applying a burn
technique, I think the flower is presented as a stronger
focal point.

And then, just because I can possibly means that I have to.
Layers and layers later, this flower is blended with the sky
and gradients to become something altogether different.

What do you think?
