I think you just went way overboard with the processing here
Well you stand corrected mate . No PP done here, was shot with a polarizer on the 12-24mm early in the morning.Was a little taken aback with the output and decided to retain the image than deleting it. PP was mostly sharpening the image and adjusting the color curves.
Flower show has started in Lalbagh, here is one from today's photo walk with the dedicated Bangalore Weekend Shoots Club, thanks to HW for inviting me . Unfortunately I didnt carry my tripod today and had a tough time with macros.
