Leaning Flowers, by Mehmet Masum

These beautiful flowers are from my town Diyarbakir, southeast of the Turkey. I found them in a park leaning towards the ground, and showcasing the glory in a best possible color combination, purple and yellow.

    I like the separation between subject flower and the dark green background. The subject in purple and yellow is a nice color combination. The subject is also interesting in how the flowers goes from just maturing to almost full bloom.
