Our start image of a flower, which we'll highlight by making everything around it dark.

The first step is to open the image in Polarr Photo Editor.

Next, we're going to use the HSL tool to decrease the saturation for green, cyan, and yellow. This will basically remove all the color from the leaves in the image.

Now we'll add a local adjustment using the color mask. Place it over the leaves and max out the range to cover as much of the leaves as possible.

With our color mask active, we'll decrease the exposure value.

Next, we add another local adjustment. This time just a radial mask that we center over the flower. Then we'll change the exposure value to -100 to make as much of the image outside the flower as dark as possible. Do this step twice.

For our final edit, we open the global adjustment panel and use the HSL tool again. This time, we're going to increase the magenta hue value to change the color of the flower from a purple to red bias.
