Maybe I'm wrong but to me it looks like as the foreground flower cannot get direct light from the sun. Did you use a flash, reflector or other light source or did you lift the exposure in PP?

Lots of dodging and burning to help that foreground stand out!

Reminds me a lot of Nick Pages stuff. I'm sure to be in the minority here but to me, the foreground is over-processed a tad too much to be believable. I've been seeing this style a lot lately on instagram, shooting into the sun with dodged/burned foregrounds, maybe just not my cup of tea.

I do appreciate the composition and the effort involved behind the computer screen!
