It should be the cover of a book or calendar. You are achieving perfection with these Dahlia shots.
This is pure delight, Barbara.

Fantastic color and processing work on this one! I like the very warm tones on the background against the reds in the flowers! I am over in Hawaii on the Big Island working on volcano images and I need your expertise on the flowers here!! Have a great rest of the weekend!

I must say they make very good subjects for photography with their rich shapes and colour. But yours always have a particular touch as they become artistic!
