"Spent"

This hibiscus bloom has closed for the last time. Soon the withering process will start. So, why isn't this beautiful too?

 

I made this image with my Pentax K5 and Pentax 50mm macro. Processing was done in Aperture 3 and Photoshop CS5.

 

Camera settings: ISO 800, aperture f/4, shutter 1/1000, focal length 50mm
