Still Life Dahlia

"Gingerbreadcam" pinhole camera, paper negative, 45-minute exposure, developed in Caffenol C, colorized in Photoshop

 

It is a great day when your neighbor brings you a bunch of her beautiful dahlias, and a bagful of homegrown tomatoes!

 

My trusty "natural light" window is letting in less and less light as the seasons progress towards winter. It is creating a light metering challenge when photographing dark flowers, in contrast to lighter surroundings of the composition.
