I battle to get nice rose images this season because the strong winds batter and bruise them. Two images of our Burning Sky rose taken about 30 minutes apart - one before the sun hits it and one after - the difference is amazing Smile
V2 - In the sun
A huge thank you to Colleen and Ali for gracing my Hydrangea with their precious Users Awards, as well as to all who commented and voted. I really appreciate the interaction Smile
Have a super Saturday

This is a great example of white balance gone mad!. The colour tone should be the same in both, so V1 is too cool, too blue.

I like V2, - it looks "real", why not put it as V1?
