About the Image(s)

This image was taken with my Nikon 7100 with a 105mm macro lens. It was taken in a studio setting on my kitchen table with natural light against a white background, In post-processing, I adjusted the contrast, clarity and vibrance a little to bring out the vibrant color and shapes. I added a textured background and border to create the feeling of a botanical illustration in the style of an Audubon graphic. It occurred to me that this dahlia appears to be wearing a Phyllis Diller hairstyle.

As usual, a lovely portrait. The coloring in the image and the framing is very nice. It could be the "hairstyle" is because the flower is on it's way out?   Posted: 07/10/2024 00:26:11

Ingrid, beautiful image enhanced by the background and border, good texture to highlight all those petals and I can't think of anything I would change.   Posted: 07/12/2024 15:33:41
