    if underesposure is at work here, it was your friend.
    I noticed the green thing right away also and thought it would likely be nicer removed.
    it was.
    well done

    Beautiful shot. I think the exposure suits it well.

    Thanks Isac. Other than basic editing I do very little but I have had a go at your suggestion and see what you mean.

    I'm another liker of this. Under exposing for flowers is the norm because of the high reflection they give off - especially reds and yellows, so it's good to do that. I like the subtle vignette as well - nice touch to highlight the flower.
    Once you get used to Curves, you will very rarely use Levels. I would remove the green bulb above the hibiscus - just for aesthetics

    Thanks guys, I did try a slight levels adjustment but it just didn't seem to work as well.

    I like it too mate, it reminds me of a grandmother who is showing signs of her age but is still loved.
    To me the lighting is perfect.

    Hibiscus flower

    As a change from birds we have this battered Hibiscus flower in the garden, It's under exposed but I quite like it.
