I wasn’t crazy about this image, but its the last on my card for August. I took it because of the way the light hit the flower and the combination of full bloom and dead blooms. It turned out kind of meh.
I played around with it a bit using some of the filters in G’mic and Nik (both are pugins for the GIMP).
