Flattery: Reinterpretation

Challenge #49 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
How many times have you looked at a photographer's image and thought "I'd have done it THIS way"? Well, let's see what you've got. Submit an image as soon as you can. Wait a day or two and take a look at the other images submitted. Pick the one you think you can improve, reinterpret it the way you want (either rephotograph or edit/retouch), withdraw your original entry and submit the new (improved) image with credit to the original photographer in the description (if editing someone's image). The idea is not just to show off your skill at reinterpreting another's work, but to see how another photographer would treat your image.

4th place
Lovely shot of a Lotus Blossom by Hedgehoger. Applied some fake HDR in an attempt to give the image a little more depth. Once lightened the image revealed a lot of noise so this was reduced as much as could be done without losing the sharpness of the blossom itself. Finally the colour curves were adjusted along with the levels and the centre sharpened slightly whilst the outer leaves where blurred slightly.
