Such a soft and tender take on this flower. The yellow around the base of the leaves is luminous.

Lovely tones here, Anita. Your gentle treatment is always flattering.

I like that yellow at the base of the flower. Was that originally in the flower or a result of the texture?

@Julie Brown: Julie: The yellow was in the flower. Hereis the image without textures.

I, too, was wondering about the surprise of yellow but, yes, see it in the original, now. This one looks good enough to eat . . but, perhaps I have been spending too much time with my snails ! Have a lovely week, Anita.

@Ronnie 2¢: Ronnie: You were supposed to eat the brussel sprouts, not the snails! But, I'd be happy to have you taste my Dahlias if you like. :-) The textures accented the yellow in this image.

GJC from Kyoto (京都), Japan

There is lovely delicacy here (and for what it's worth, the "original" you provided the link for is luscious too; I like the pink tones in that one).

@GJC: Thanks! I'm playing around with different effects.

This is gorgeous. I love the expression of the flower along with the processing treatment and texture.
