I did some rather heavy edits on the original scan from film. Below I added original file. Which one would you prefer? Or maybe something in between?

Piotr- this is my first "exposure" to your work! Already I see balance, depth and composition of image! Excellent work- I look forward to following you.

I also like #1 more. There is more luminosity in it. Well done!

Thank you very much, Heike. I just recently started to edit my photos beyond absolute basics. There is a lot to learn and your words are really encouraging smile

I like how the edit makes the flower pop.  Good job, great composition.

The edit is better, but I would have tried going for a clearer background. If that was even possible. smile

Thanks Björn, I'm glad you like it. I wanted background to be more defined, but I guess there could be less noise/grain here wink
