I captured this at an indoor rose show: light was low and challenging, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well my camera handled metering and white balance. I love the form of this rose and did lots of experimenting in post-processing. I hope you like the result of my playing. :) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/4.5, 1/100 sec., ISO 1250) Post-processing notes: The original rose was a strong, bright pink with white. I used two texture layers, a blurred layer, a black and white adjustment layer at 70% opacity, and multiple layer masks. Textures courtesy of Shadowhouse Creations.
