A still life taken at my friends' wedding at the end of May; quickly arranged on the coffee table whilst the bride was getting herself ready.
Another experiment with HDR from 3 original shots and hopefully a bit more successful this time. I've uploaded #2 for comparison, as the middle of the jpegs after a very rough autofix!
All comments, suggestions and criticisms very welcome

The woodgrain as a background is lovely, Tim, I do like wood with a flower, the hard and the soft. I have done a little mod and added a heavier drop shadow, then cropped the image a bit, hope you like it.

Thankyou everyone for the votes and comments.
And thankyou Pamela for the mod; exactly why I like to allow them, as I'd have never thought to boost the shadow, which adds some extra depth and I do prefer your crop too.

I done a mod on pamalejean's mod. Using an overlay layerwith 50% gray, I have darkened the rose a tad (by a opacity of 16%).

Super image

Thankyou for the mod John; actually I'd already selectively boosted the highlights of the rose on the right where it had felt a little flat to me in the original; but always interesting to see an alternative preference and your version does show off some of the textures better
