A rose for you:-) I took this for a photochallenge. The challange was Square Crop. I took a picture of a yellow rose. Reduced noise, sharpened, added a slight glow, and a tinted vignette. Some loved it, some HATED it. I was going for a very soft look to the petals - almost like fabric - layers and layers of soft smooth fabric.

Very imaginative, Amy!
I like the softness, as it makes me wonder around the square to find more and more things in there...many TFS!

Hi Amy

Very sensual...looks like butter, A big well done and a big smile


i like it Amy :)
lovely soft colors, the shapes further enhance that soft look and mood :)

good work

I am in the "loved it" camp. So smooth! Yellow can be hard to picture in a pretty way. This is a very sensual yellow.


Very special Amy,
It sort of looks like melting candle wax. The soft light is very apealing.

I liked it :) TFS

I like the pp work on your rose Amy, for those who hated it, who cares?? Ha ha!

Hi Amy,
I think it is great. A very soft image. I may have moved it a bit off the centre, just to make it asymmetrical.

The effects here, are great. This rose is lightfull! That final result stay between romantic and very graphical! And it's good!
