Douglas- I was so enthralled by that magnificent flower that I paid no attention to the bright upper left, although I agree that it's too bright. I prefer your first fix- the second one makes the whole image look like a studio setup, and changes my whole attitude toward it.
But as I was appreciating the uniqueness of the image, I decided that it would look much better with a little basic tweaking. So I tweaked it a little. To me it looks a lot better. I'd be happy to post it for comparison if you want, Douglas.
