Just a Rose

    Darren, the effects are stunning. PS is really a great product, but you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear - you need a terrific photo to start with, and this certainly is one of those. Extremely well done, my good friend.

I do like it, Darren! I think the effects emphasize the softness of the petals and also give a little bit of an antiquated feel to the photo. Reminds me of velvet or suede cloth with the subtle color variations. Very cool image!

Gives it a different flavor than the usual red rose. I like it!

It's not just a rose, it's a work of art. Love the look your PS work gave this already excellent image. Well done, Darren! :-)

It's just beautiful, Darren! I love the effects ... it gives it an abstract feeling. It's also very dramatic!

Not "just a rose"...it's a Darren style piece of art.
Reminds me of fading love/passion with the coloring. Great job :)

Nicely done, Darren.
Thanks for the heads up, Murry.
I just glanced through the Edge catalog and spotted your Mabry's Mill right away.
I'll have to look through for the others.
Congratulations!

Beautiful as usual, Darren!!!
Thinking of Romeo and Juliet style love/passion with the embeded shadowing in the rose...
