Before I started editing, I cropped the image to make the flower be in the center. I first used a curves layer to add more color as it was a bit dull in the original image. I then applied a levels layer to darken the colors even more. After this I used the Burn tool to darken parts of the flower and the leaves and peppers behind it. I used the Dodge tool to brighten the lighter parts of certain leaves and the small amount of sky at the top.
