Processed with Pixel Bender - Oil Filter, Efex HDR and Silver Pro, texture from macro of the piano finish and a granite sculpture to produce the diagonal lines, Color added to rose and overlay texture by Lenebem-Anna. I downloaded the image and when I opened it, all of a sudden the rose looked too large for the image and the 8.5 by 11 dimensions looked off. I think the horizontal orientation put the image too close to the eye and in this case the rose was too close. I'm not sure but in a scramble I added the border and I'm OK with the proportions - does the rose look too big or maybe too up front - let me know.
Specially slid for Happy Sliders Sunday - HSS!
