Dahlia has a great variety. She is probably one of the most colorful and attractive flowers. I planted a few bulbs later last year and can now enjoy the blooms. Some are truly gorgeous, but my favorite has always been something more muted and understated.  I tried a few stacked images. They are super sharp and striking, but my eyes seem to always roll back to the image like this one…

This plant had at least 10 buds ready to open any time and it was on sale for $3.99. A huge temptation for me. I brought it home and this first baby blossomed. I took 14 shots and stacked them. Then I pampered it with some texture goodies.  Now the newbie suddenly sits on the throne (at least in my imagination 🙂  Sharp image is great, but I cannot help not to tone it down again.
