Nice shot, :)PJ. I like the composition and color.
I also like the sprinkling of vincas in the backgroud and
and the buds on the right side of the image. I am wondering
if the center of the flower might be a little dark. Great

I like this, but find the center, stamens, of the flower a bit too dark, and the surrounding area as well. But if it were just a tad shade lighter in the overall, it would be fantastic.V

Awww PJ, you shouldn't have. Oh alright then, maybe you should. After all, Verena has just told me I look like Ed Harris. Ahem. Ditto V on the light in this but the colour's great and I like the glossy green foliage and the little buds on the right.

And a lovely token it is too, I must say, PJ with the colour deepening towards the middle like all dahlias. I like that deep purple.

To quote Stixx when he looked at it this morning: "That is purdy dang clear." Beautiful composition and I personally like the darker center. Adds a little mystery and we all know that close affection needs a little mystery for spice.

Colors and background are great.

Nice post Peej.

I thought this looked very feminine and very festive on my DT today, PJ. Such a pretty color for a dahlia and I like all the lovely impatiens bringing up the background.
