Beautiful Imperfection

By louisemorrisonsty
Thank you all soooo much for all your input into my recent uploads. It means the world to me.

As you can see this photo is not a subject I normally put in my portfolio, but I thought it would be a nice break from the cats. I see a lot of perfect roses and kind of like this one as its, as the title says, imperfect. Grin

This was just a straight forward jpeg with some cropping, no other tweaks.

canon lens efs 18-55mm on the macro setting.

I hope you like. As always comments and tips very welcome.

Thanks again.

Well, it doesn't go miaow and scratch (don't mind me, I've just been savaged by our cockerel, Gregory). It's a nice idea and the colour is lovely, but the centre of focus needs to be more clearly defined. It must be the withered petal because the veins are visible. A touch of subtle sharpening here, along with a slight deepening of the shadows, might work wonders. It would have to be subtle, though. A subject as soft and delicate as a rose doesn't need hard edges. Why not give it a try and post a second version?

What a wonderful idea - to make a beautiful image from a flower with flaws. I like that, Louise. Gorgeous!
