[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know the name of this flower, but I like the way the light is hiting it, projecting nice shadows.

On PP: Color adjustments in Lightroom, by reducing luminance on the red, green and magenta channels I managed to get more deep colors. But the most important factor was a radial filter, brightening the already light area and darkening the shadows. The control of light zones has been the most fruitful technique I used so far, since I started posting here.

PS: And I also removed some blemishes using Photoshop's spot removal and clone stamp.
