Another Pretty Dahlia
I'm not sure of the name of this dahlia (another one from my mom's garden); it has large blossoms and is pink/mauve and white, though the middle of the petals, as you can see, are a yellowish colour (not really green - but that might have happened in the process of editing in PSE).
For this shot, in the editing department, I auto adjusted the colour and contrast and also used the dry brush application. I think it makes the photo look more like a painting than a photography; maybe that's why I like this shot. I know that one of the petals has a hole in it, and I'm sure it could be fixed in PSE, but at the moment I don't know how to do that. It's something on my list of things to learn though. I think I'll try the dry brush application on some other photos and see how it looks (both flowers and other shots).
