That's our problem here in Greece many times with the harsh light from the first moments of the day . This Camplain had a guy too who came in Greece to Photograph .  I had to  try cover some highlihts special on the flower with a darken layer and tone up few shadows as well with a lighten layer ( you copy color from the flower with the eye droper and you paint around the place you want highlights or shadows . Most of the times it works around in 60-68% opacity of the layer . Some guys will add a little monchromatic noise for the texture around 1-3% useal i don't . ) 

The Flash was on but didn't fire as i had low battery is natural light by mistake .

The bg is so nice and no flash seems to work out splendidly!
