A new dahlia, opening up to the soft light of overcast skies. I wanted the look of a painting and so processed the image using semi-transparent layers with several Topaz filters applied, finished with a subtle texture layer (“Dahlia” by Leslie Nicole). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/125 sec., ISO 500, handheld) Texture courtesy of Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures
