It’s been awhile since I have posted a picture for critique on this forum. So I decided to post a photo taken not too long ago at one of the world’s largest inner-city parks: Kings Park. Besides being a tourist attraction in Perth, this park also has a botanic garden where some of Australia’s most unique and exotic plants are grown. The picture I have enclosed is an example of a native species popularly known as kangaroo paw.
Enjoying golden hour photography but lacking sufficient practice at it, I decided to take a picture of this plant with the sun’s illumination on it. However, I think that the highlight of the sun seems to alter the quality of this picture by creating stark contrasts of light and dark. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could improve a shot like this in the future? Thank you in advance for your comments.
Here are the specs of the picture:

You mainly just need to process this photo. I edited a photo very similar to this in the December 11 webinar, at minute 9:14, and it’s amazing what you can do to direct the viewers eye where you want it to go.
