An interesting mod. but as you might guess I really like your original, the dahlia flower (and friend) standing out almost in 3D against my favourite black b/g.
Excellent colour and detail.

It's always nice to have a friend and when you are as beautiful as this you will always have a friend. Crackingly [I think I just made that word up] presented, stunning colours and magnificently sharp.

I agree with Ronnie, the black background is what makes the red flower fairly pounce out of it.
The addition of the 'friend' being the icing on the cake here, Richard.
