Like many of you, I love roses in all their many beautiful variations and colors. This one has been sitting in my files since July but today seemed the ideal image for my first experimentation with brand-new textures from French Kiss. (Please view large for details and textures!) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/100 sec., ISO 400, open shade, handheld.) Textures (Solstice/Ebullience, Autumn Rain/Equinox, Textures III/Labyrinth) are from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.

    Oooh, stunning color, Celeste!!! I just love the color showing through in the background, too!!!

  • Laurie, thanks very much! One of the textures I used actually intensified the color a bit, and I liked the effect.

    Lovely mellow tones and a delicate hand with the textures – perfect rose.

  • Many thanks, Bette. Two of the three textures I used are fairly subtle, and I used some masking with the strongest texture.
