The very dark stems and buds of this pink dahlia look strange at dusk. They must be an extremely dark green. The flower itself, however, is very bright. It seems to glow in the twilight. Selective coloring adds to this effect. ☺
Canon EOS REBEL T1i, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm.
Edited using Corel Paint Shop Pro: selective coloring on a black and white background with added texture.
Location: Harkness State Park in Waterford, Connecticut (USA).

Dedicated to finding magic in the dim moments of twilight.
