Even though they are past their best, Chris, they still make for a wonderful image, well captured and presented. Carol

I will only go so far as to say it looks very Victorian, and needs an Aspidistra by it's side. Digi-droop is beyond me..... I think the image is superb.

What poor, faded things. Full of melancholy, and just superb.

I love roses past their prime Smile In fact, I took some shots of a rose a short while its prime...then later...then later...then later. The later shots were wonderful. So much rich texture and colour.

You've composed and exposed this to perfection and it would make a GREAT oil painting, Chris.
