We finally got all our flowers in for the summer.  Perennials in the ground and annuals in planters.  Well, some are annuals, and the big ones are perennials that we plan on storing inside for the winter.  Here's a couple of shots.

The first one is a dahlia.  I've been working on the image on the computer, trying to come up with a different look.  This is how it looks, right out of the camera with no editing.


This is another dahlia, but I did some editing to darken the background.  Out of the camera the leaves are very green and the flower is brighter.  I darkened it to make the flower pop, and I also darkened the flower, making it more dramatic without losing its color.

Try bringing up the highlights on that 2ed shot.
Messing with the photos is half the fun!

Actually, I turned the highlights down in order to darken the background.
