Another Dahlia

By DolphinLady
Found this one with its stem snapped & lying on the ground, so brought it indoors & placed it in a vase of water with some feed, waited a couple of days until it perked up, then put in front of some black velvet & took a couple of photos.
I took it in a darkened room with some blue coloured tissue over the flash, & with a little contrast & unsharp mask, this is the result....Hope you like it.
