In the linked image, there seem to be some purples around the red petal edges. So I took the liberty of opening the image in ColorThink. a) Looks like pbase strips out the ICC profile but mainly b) the reds and greens are quite heavily color-clipped to the 3D sRGB gamut boundary - perhaps due to the direct sunlight illumination?

I can also get that effect in SPP by editing to perfection in ProPhoto working space and then 'saving image as' sRGB . . .
