Not sure what type of flower this is, but I really liked how clearly the center came into focus. I also think the colors are nice. I used auto levels, and increased the red and yellow hues by about %15. This is my first post in quite a while.. hope you like it!

Hi Brian,
Here is another B&W version. I think this one is sharper. I don't know what I did to the other one. I like this one better.

All I did here was completely desaturate the colors, and then invert the "colors" in the image for a negative. Similar to what Evenlyn did, but not quite the same. :)
