I appreciate the many positive responses to my prior post! Thank you!!
I know I am supposed to have the center of the flower leaning into not out of the photo. But, I liked the curls on the left, and the leaning out doesn't bother me.
After reading Tomas' comment, I went back to the image and ran some noisse suppression software, and posted the improved image.
