Day 25 - White Cosmos

White flowers are such a challenge!  How to give them a subtle personality along with shadows and light, without overdoing it?  This Cosmos was stark white, but I went back with a faint pink wash to some parts, but I don't think I got the shadow quite right.  I may go back and fiddle with it again...
