I used to grow roses like the one in your image, and buy many books with pitures of roses. Your image is absolutely gorgeous!

Wonderful colors, Paula! And I would bet most of the flowers we see come from the supermarket! Congrats and good luck!

Thanks again everyone. I hope y'all don't think I actually made this beautiful rose multi-toned. It grew this way, wish I knew it's name. I just accented the edges in the red channel, selected the center and inversed it, (I liked the center just as it was), and applied dry brush, cross hatching and blur tool to rest of rose to give it a painterly effect.
