Fade Away

A fading orange rose.

I've removed the disturbing background by adding a dark curves layer as a mask and painted the mask onto the background. An old trick which can be performed in various ways, but it seemed fitting for this image. Handheld macro, light from a living room lamp with one of the small halogen light bulbs.
