Party over, down to earth Smile Going to do the 'Before and After' thing to show how this went from a David Austin rose to a dark place in the recesses of the mind... but please note the light is always there somewhere Smile

Amazing to the stages involved, I would never have thought this started as a rose - brilliant manipulation, as always

Wonderful result you've achieved with this manipulation.....very " On another planet " sort of image.
If I have to choose, I prefer version 3...lovely soft tones.
But that's typical of me being a bit of a softie.
Well done.

Great work, from a rose to a foreboding, dark mountain range, with a valley leading towards the light.

Brilliant again! This 'before and after' effect is wonderful for us to see the starting point of your amazing images Allie. However, I was hoping to discover secrets but just ended up even more in awe of your technique and imagination!
