Good work in getting rid of the green caste and for sharpening the petals. There is a real and noticeable difference from the original.

Perhaps a short explanation of your technique might be of use to other people?

Sure, basically I used Levels to stretch the narrow contrast over a full tonal range and to shift/darken the mid-tones to balance and saturate the color (to my impression of the original flowers). Then I used an unsharp mask to minimize the blur (I think around 200) and added a slight bit of Gaussian blur to soften the resulting noise in the petals. Finally I touched up a couple of the worst blemishes. All-and-all it was a relatively quick retouch and I liked the look for the time spent.
