Th English Rose

By NDODS    
Before I go on I shall take the time to thank you all once agian for your most generous comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload of the Sunflower. I would also like to send my regards to footloose(Dennis), achieverwales(Trevor), Chinga,(Isabel), Franken(Ken), Lifesnapper(John) and Michaela_Solway(Michaela) for their User Awards.

Today's upload the final in my floral assemble depicts my favourite of all out flowers. The English Rose., a flower which comes in many forms, guises, shapes and colours, however one that is always distinguishable, and one which I am sure many of you will love.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day for me who knows, I shall take the day as it comes.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Another beautiful result from your processing, Nathan, starting of course with a superb shot of this pristine rose.
The rose seems almost luminescent, shining forth from the subdued surrounding tones.
Sorry to hear this is the last in the series.

Wonderful rose and colours Nathan but I am not a fan of text on photos.

Hi Nathan , glad I could get you to 100 , that's some score maybe you could loan me a few Wink . Seriously nearly missed this , I'm viewing on iPad and could not see the fantastic effect in this image , its very different from the usual floral shot. It really is something special . Lots of votes on this site go to friends ands sometimes the numbers don't add up in my opinion ( especially on my shots which should get loads hahaGrin ) but in this case the high number is well deserved . Very well done . Stay well mate , kind regards Kel
Some great processing in this. A great tonal range in the flower. Well done Nathan.
