divine dahlia: part three…

Dahlia 3

All good things must come to an end…including the Divine Dahlia mini-series!  🙂  Hope you have been enjoying the photos!  Now, I know that this flower was beautiful in all of its colored glory, but I really wanted to try some good ol’ black-and-white to bring out the details in the petals…and I think it worked!

As usual, the photo was taken with the Canon G7.  Post-processed in Photoshop to select the color of the black-and-white filter.  Enjoy and stay tuned for more pictures!

  1. This is like fire, isn’t it? Its beautiful, it draws you in but it is hot and it keeps you from getting too close.

  2. Ohh beauty!!!! The fade effect on the petals is magical. The black & white and the frame just adds more to the magic! Great shot!
