This photo was originally taken at 1600×1200, with the flower mostly centered. I cropped it to 1024×768 and adjusted the brightness & contrast to make the flower more pleasing to my eye. My camera only does jpgs, so there may be some quality loss from the editing.
These, and several other varieties of yellow and yellow-orange flowers grow in profusion around my house. I have taken a lot of photos of them because they are so conveniently available.
