Beautiful vibrant dahlia standing out brilliantly in fine detail against the black b/g (after being rescued from the rain).

Thankyou for the dahlia, Mike, I love the colour and the droplets.
Have you considered a square crop?

a square crop as Pamela suggests would work well but a lovely vibrant flower shot and the water droplets add to the picture

Hi Mike
The colours of the flower and background are perfect together, the composotion works but also think the square one would also, perhaps for another day, excellent work.

Trev.

The water drops (dew? rain?) are a nice touch. Nicely done.
