Dahlias are one of my favorite flowers for their overall showy appeal. This one is a real beauty and whatever app(s) you used enhanced it very well, and with great taste. Beautifully done.

Amazing texture for this one, John. It really comes alive, like it's going to pop right off the screen! Very effective-love the cheery brightness.

I agree with Cynthia + I would see it beautifully in large size hanging on a wall.
