Daffodils Editing Steps

I loved these poor snow covered flowers.   Here’s the original:

First step, I took it into Camera Raw to adjust the exposure a bit and remove some of the distractions:

Next, into Photoshop where I (1) unlocked and duplicated the base layer.  (2) Then on the bottom layer, I used Edit->Transform ->Flip Vertical.  (3) On the second layer, I used a layer mask so I could remove the distractions in the upper right corner, replacing them with snow.

Finally, I added a Levels layer so I could brighten things up by adjusting the histogram:
