I like doing this type of shot on my phone. What I see very plainly is the roughness along the stem and clear evidence of PP work. Blow it up and it is clearly visible. Take a bit more time to clean it up and you will get a better result. On a Samsung phone, the native camera app allows a pretty clean result. Lightroom on a computer is way harder. Never tried PS. Flower looks good and light, too.

Nice, simple image - post processing issues appear resolved.

A nice cheery photo- rather nice how it seems to emerge out of the dark from the bottom. Pretty light. Be nice if the whole flower was in focus, but this still works well.
Just a note- and this applies to a lot of images I've seen lately that have been revised- our general policy is to put the revision in the comments thread so people can see how something has been altered. That is educational for everyone. This can be done when you use "post a reply".
