Dahlia 2

By oldgreyheron      
In yesterday's image " Water and light " you can see some bedding dahlias in the bottom left corner. Here's a close up which has had minimal adjustment - this time I haven't eliminated the natural background, just darkened it a little in a couple of places, and used USM to sharpen the whole thing somewhat.

I like the subtle colours in the flower - I hope that you do too!

Thanks for looking, Mike

Sharp, great colors, yes, but what I like is the almost symetry of the flower and the way you have cropped it to show this off---

Lovely, Jennnnnnn

Some great cropping to this Mike.
A beautiful flower, with such a pretty colour to the centre with those tones of green.
Wonderful composition.

An excellent specimen, superb detail and clarity. I've got lots of dahlia's similar to this one in my back garden
