Dark Rose

By Therapy
I'm so far out of my comfort zone with this. I liked the picture that I had taken of this beautiful rose, but the background was extremely messy. I decided to isolate the flower by giving the picture a square crop and then dodging the background until it was as dark as I could get it.
I have to say that I was influenced by the way that Sawsengee isolates her portrait subjects. Any suggestions for improvement will be greatly appreciated. I have included the original shot so that you can see my starting point.

Excellent presentation - the thumbnail caught my eye and the larger image did not disappoint. I am impressed with this capture - the detail and the color.
