I like the HDR on the leaves, but not so much on the lovely, white petals. I wonder if you could layer in the original main flower?

Nice composition, with the buds facing every-which-way! I have Easter shots that I haven't even processed yet (I'm just a little behind).

They certainly are a bizarre colour. Kind of bluish. Very cool shot.
