Thanks for the wonderful comments and input on the Saturday Shadows rose, all
Moira, the desaturation came from a filter/effect I’d used in Snapseed. I’d downloaded a free 15-day demo and was messing about with it
Actually, today’s V1 was processed using Snapseed as well.
V2 is the straight-from-cam shot taken a couple of days ago. I find the whites in the back a bit distracting, to be honest. The whites are the fully opened roses. The buds are pink but the flowers are pure white…
…which you can see in V3. I did a quick grab (V3) this evening as a reference shot to show you all the full roses.
The bud itself was only little (about 1.5cm long) and I had to use an extension tube to get near enough. Cute little thing, huh? Speaking of which, congrats to the happy couple on their royal little bundle
