I use Aperture for my editing. When I processed this photo, I cropped it just a bit to balance the flowers in the frame. Then I adjusted the exposure because it was so bright out the day I shot it. I also adjusted highlights and mid contrast. Then I added a little blue temperature to the white balance, increased the definition and raised the vibrancy a little bit. Then when I was done I sharpened just a tad. I shoot and edit in RAW, then export as JPGs to upload.
