Re: A Little Beauty

I think the problem is with the subject:

It's a dark flower, in shade and surrounded with darkish leaves. Without significant highlights with a trace of clear white, and shadows with a trace of solid black, and a range of tones between the two, - it's never going to have the sparkle (or the currently fashionable term 'pop' ) that grabs the attention.
