Painting with natural colors

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D. One hand holding the camera, one hand pretending to paint the flower. There was a flower in the foreground to the left which I originally wanted to crop out but then decided to leave in, maybe to show this is a photo not a painting? Eh ;P Curves in post editing for contrast and color. Decreased green midtones to bring out the purple hues. Minor noise reduction and then selectively sharpening of the center.

Additional Comments
Peach tree in the front yard is blossoming. One blossom was a lot lighter than the rest. Caught my eye I guess.

I see so many people doing photos like this lately. It's a pretty idea, and I do like the blurred flower on the left.

Aha! I knew it. You paint your flowers.

In all seriousness I really like this one. I am not sure why maybe it is the collor or more than likely it is that you have added a pink flower and a paintbrush. It works so well. =)
