A flower and a bud

Happy Tuesday! I am so ready for brighter warmer days. To get out to the parks and gardens, lakes and riversides is something I am so longing to do. But, me and cold weather do not get along. So for today I dug in the archives again.

First off we have a pink flower….

Now I confess.. the background on this was some rather dark green boring leaves. I just increased the blacks and lowered saturation to get the black background which in my opinion makes the flower POP.

For my second shot to share today is of this beautiful Dahlia bud. Taken in the autumn of last year with added texture.

Have a beautiful day.
