Timeless Dahlia [206/366]

What struck me most about this blossom was it's texture and shape. This naturally called for a black and white image. Black and white images usually make for more dramatic subjects when the original colors are very similar. Black and white is capable of fine-tuning the shades and producing more visually stimulating results.
