I'm not quite sure if I've gone over to the dark side with this image! I rather like the intensity of it, but my husband seemed less enthusiastic about this one. I've been playing with the post-processing of this little still life of Muriel Robin roses from the garden for nearly 2 years and this texture finally feels right.
I've done 3 variations of this image. I think I prefer the 2nd version, but I like the 3rd too. Let me know what you think!
The texture is Possibilities from the Studio No. 5 collection. It's a huge texture which you can crop for different looks.
