"Mary Rose"

By RonnieAG
One of our new David Austin Old English roses, Mary Rose: I thought that SCR might work well and I like the result but knowing that others are less keen I have posted the original at V 2.

My thanks to all for the kind comments on It's Coming Off No Matter What You Say, and a big thank you to Graham {digital_boi} for his User Award. Also a big thank you to Ray {Billyray} for his for Alstroemeria.

What a beautiful rose Ronnie (sorry I've just given away my award).
The desaturated leaves do look good in V1 but with the dark green leaves in the colour version
it is a hard choice between these two images.

A very beautiful rose, Ronnie, and no doubt with a glorious scent, too. The presentation of V.2 works best for me. Carol

Popping the colour really works well and is preferred to the original.

The rose is well placed in the frame for a good composition, Ronnie. The original is a lovely natural image but the selective colour is a real beauty, the greys seem to enhance the pink colour so well.

Two excellent versions of this lovely rose Ronnie, but I think the natural colouring of V2 wins it for me today.

Superb use of colour popping or selective colour Ronnie. The manipulation really enhances the overwhelming beauty and charm of the Rose.

Two superb images, I prefer v2 by a small margin. Sharp, subtle naturalistic flower colour and excellent composition.
3 Jul 2013 10:34AM
the rose contrast so much better with the darker background Ronnie so it gets my vote good capture well positioned in frame

Go for the full colour one here Ronnie.
Just think it looks more ''natural'' !!
3 Jul 2013 12:03PM
Two beautiful versions, Ronnie - it has to be V1 today and the colour pop!!

Love the processing Ronnie, the grey tones certainly makes the rose 'zing' - I like the natural look of V2 as wellSmile

V 2 for me though the choice was a difficult. David Austin nurseries are but a few lies from home.

I think the leaves are so dark that they make the rose stand out more than adequately without the selective colour used in V1, Ronnie.

This is beautiful Ronnie. I love the color version and am as yet undecided about the pop - certainly adds drama though. A

The use of selective colouring has worked a treat here Ronnie. I think there should be a Ronnie Gordon rose named after you after all the wonderful images you've uploaded of this beautiful flower during your time on epz
