I used a combination of unsharp mask, KPT6 equalizer (excellent for sharpening different pixel radii while leaving others untouched or even blurred), and dust'n'scratches filter, along with lighten blend mode here and there. Blurred the green background a bit, then used auto-levels.

I like the way you have sharpened the image without bringing out the grain in the petals

Beautiful work... still a little green around the centers, and that detracts a little, but very sharp and grain-free.

Phili, in part, yes, but the dust'n'scratches filter was also very helpful. By the way, if you don't have KPT6, its "equalizer" filter alone is worth the cost...I use it a LOT!

As always it was the thumbnail that dragged me in for a closer look. Great job Phyliss, it must have been tough to keep the centre of the flowers sharp and visable whilst not going overboard with the leaves

Maybe a slight green hue still, but overall its a beauty.
