Christmas Cactus Blooms
I'd welcome some advice on these, I've done minimal editing using Lr3, cropping slightly on #1, and slight exposure increase in #2.
Actual date of photos November 2,2010
 thanks for the advice.... Unfortunately #1 was taken this way, the slight crop was from the left side.
I did clone out the blurry background area as well as try to brighten the stamen.
#2 I cloned out the pot as suggested and tried to brighten up the stamen and sharpen the petals
