|The whole idea to input some brightness in this shot that I suspect was taken under a dull overcast sunlight :|
1- first tilted the image 20° counterclockwise to strengthen the compo and achieve a simili diagonal with the butterfly wings. Then cropped.
2- duplicated the layer and chose "screen", which brightened the image, reduced opacity of the effect to 50% to get the "correct exposure". flattened the layers.
3- duplicated the layers and chose "multiply" which saturated and darkened the colored parts, good for the dull sky but much too dark for some bakground parts and the flowers.
4- then chose the eraser with a 30ù effect and started erasing the parts of the mulktiply layer where i thought that was too dark, specially on the flowers. When happy with the result flattened the layers.
5- used the USM at radius 0.3, effect 100
