A rose by any other colour

One of the Blarney Castle roses.

The original was very saturated and detail was lost in the bright red of the petals. Making a monochrome image made the detail stand out and drops became visible again.

A little dodge and burn to finish.

    MMMmmm, red flowers can be the worst ever to photograph! Im quite a fan of the colourless rose myself, the petals can look like paper or tissue with the colour removed... or course water droplets just give it oomph!
