I am always trying to view my photographs in many ways...whether it be lighting, textures, toning, or composition...to see if I can take the original and make it a bit better. Sometimes, I have to sacrifice the rest of the photograph in order to get what I want. This photo had many little petals from other flowers surrounding this one. I cropped the other flowers out and stuck with this one as the focal point. Instead of an 11x17 image, I ended up with a 12x12. I added a black border around it to give it a square look.
