Sometimes, You Just Have To Leave Well Enough Alone

When I first saw this photo I thought "This is pretty good. I can improve it". I started using layers, darkened the background, blurred it some, lightened the rosebud and sharpened it. I looked at it and thought instead of looking better it was just looking processed. I could keep going and try make it less processed but in this case, what was the point? So I undid everything and looked again, thought it was fine. That being said I couldn't leave it totally alone. I did adjust the brightness a bit, sharpened ever so slightly, and there was a flaw on the rosebud I fixed that if you look closely you can probably spot.
