This photograph has the feel of an impressionistic painting. It's soft colors also have the characteristics of a watercolor painting.
This special feel was achieved by camera movement, not by using a photo "processing" filter. Because of the technique, it is quite unique and original in its effect. Photoshop was used only to process the RAW file for printing. In this version, a few of the shadows in the background were removed in Photoshop to provide a complete focus on the flower itself.
