Close up of one of the dead tulips from the other day, keeping them very still in their vase or the petals just fall. They are completely dry now and just like textured paper. But lots of quite thick pollen to give a contrast.
Shot in daylight with blue card behind, HDR created from single RAW file to bring out the texture in the petals.

Thanks all, the texture has come from the drying, but a light HDR processing really made it pop out.
